Tribune hires Compton for new TV post

Another hiring to report (now that’s more like it…)

The Tribune Co. has hired radio veteran Sean Compton to senior VP of programming and entertainment for the 23-station Tribune group, which includes WGN-TV.

Compton replaces Marc Schacher, who is stepping down after 29 years with the company. Schacher was behind the Tribune group purchases of programs such as Friends, Two and a Half Men, Family Guy, and most recently, the new action hour Wizard’s First Rule from Disney-ABC Domestic Distribution.
