Chapuis comes to the station after a 10 year stint at San Francisco Bay Area FOX affiliate KTVU-TV, which ended in January. Prior to that, Chapuis led the Sacramento market’s highest-rated news program at NBC affiliate KCRA-TV.
“We are fortunate that Ed was available,” KTXL general manager Jerry Del Core said in a press release on Friday. “He will take FOX40 to new heights.”
Chapuis’ hiring was announced to station personnel on Friday at an all-hands meeting at which he appeared. His first day on the job is August 26.
