Fox 4’s new corporate masters appear to include a window shade and a cross-dresser.
A private-equity firm, Oak Hill Capital Partners, agreed to buy WDAF-TV and seven other stations from News Corp. last month. Fox 4 will be managed by Local TV LLC, Oak Hill’s “television platform.”
On Wednesday morning, the “about us” section of Local TV’s Web site featured a most unusual trio of executives, pictured above. An image of anchor-desk-worthy CEO Bobby Lawrence was flanked by a window shade and a manning-looking CFO named Pam Taylor. Some IT wise ass, it appears, removed the real Pam Taylor’s face and replaced it with Lawrence’s. The site looks like press stills from a desperate sitcom episode in which one of the male characters is visited by a sister or mother portrayed by the actor in drag.
A message left with Local TV’s press contact was not immediately returned.
