Randy Dixon stepping down from KATV

Posted By on Wed, Feb 2, 2011 at 3:51 PM

Randy Dixon, news director at KATV Channel 7, announced today that he was stepping down. He said the decision took a lot of people by surprise. Dixon has worked at KATV for 31 years and has been news director for the last 10.

This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. [KATV General Manager] Mark Rose and I have been talking about it since before Christmas and I thought this was a good time to do it. I'm basically a producer at heart. That's what I love to do and I'm not doing that anymore... I miss it. I have two small children and I miss them. I'm here so much and I want to spend some more time with them. So I can't go take a news director job in a different market. I'm staying in Little Rock.

Dixon says he plans to form his own production business called Dixon Digital Media, focusing on media training, production, documentaries, "the whole gamut." He will be at the station for two more weeks before striking out on his own.
