Longtime television newsman Doug Krile, who most recently was corporate director of news and public relations at Equity Broadcasting Corp., has left the company for a "non-media-related" corporate gig, he says.

Krile last appeared as a newsman on the "5:30 Report," a short-lived local news program on Equity's KWBF-TV, Channel 42, that was taken off the air last summer. With the loss of the live news program, along with the sale of the company last April to Coconut Palm Acquisition Corp., a "blank check" public company based in Boca Raton, Fla., Krile said his role at Equity was slowly diminishing.

"It was perfect timing that this new opportunity popped up," said Krile. "The new position is non-media-related, and the change seems like it has come at the right time."

Krile, a longtime anchor at KARK-TV, Channel 4, said he could not yet name the new company he'll be working for.

We initially asked Krile if he was jumping ship at Equity to become a part of KLRT-TV, Channel 16's growing news department.

"I actually thought about giving them a call, but this other thing came up, and I'm very excited about it," he said. "I'm really looking forward to sinking my teeth into something completely different."
