Under his direction, Bonneville has maintained the stability of its core broadcast operations while investing in and expanding upon its digital content and advertising capabilities. Brown also demonstrated a willingness to invest significantly in employees, including when he committed publicly to take steps to avoid layoffs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
    Prior to his time at Bonneville, Brown was president of McGraw-Hill Broadcasting Company. His career with McGraw-Hill spanned 28 years where he served in various sales and management roles for ABC and Azteca America television stations, including vice president and general manager roles in San Diego and Denver.

In addition to his business leadership, Brown has consistently provided support to community organizations, including the boards of Primary Children?s Hospital and the Utah Anti-Bullying Coalition. Brown plans to remain in Utah, where he resides with his wife, Lise.
    ?I?ve loved my time at Bonneville, and it?s not easy to leave, but it?s the right time for me and my family. I?m grateful for the opportunity that I?ve had to associate with so many wonderful employees as we?ve worked together to further Bonneville?s mission to be a positive influence on the communities we serve. We?ve grown as a company in our reach and impact, and I know that Tanya [Vea] will take Bonneville to the next level. I?m thrilled for the future of the company under her leadership,? Brown said.
    Vea began with Bonneville in 2010 as Vice President of Program Development. She was later promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager overseeing the Salt Lake City market, comprised of radio, digital and TV platforms. Vea has shown great skill in embracing emerging technologies and developing new distribution opportunities, including an industry-leading OTT streaming app for KSL-TV, a company-wide expansion of digital sports offerings, and the KSL Podcast division, which has over 85 million downloads and led to an exclusive podcast distribution deal with Amazon Music.

Prior to her time with Bonneville, Vea worked in advertising and public relations and in various news management positions, including news director for KUTV, which was a CBS owned and operated station at the time.
    ?Darrell [Brown] has been an incredible mentor, and I?m so grateful for all that he?s done for Bonneville. He has led by example as a steward of the company and its resources. I will miss working with him, and I feel incredibly fortunate to take on this role knowing that he has put the company in a position of strength,? Vea said. ?Bonneville is a special company. I?m committed to building on the foundation of those who have come before me and am focused on fulfilling our mission to be trusted voices in our communities. Our greatest strength is our team of talented people, and I am honored to be able to work with them to grow Bonneville for the future.?
