Kevin Keogh Named HUD New England Regional Director
BOSTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today announced that Kevin J. Keogh, from Saco, Maine, has been named as Regional Director for the six states in HUD's New England Region, based in Boston.
In this position, Keogh will serve as HUD's liaison to mayors, city managers, elected representatives, state and local officials, Congressional delegations, stakeholders and customers in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. He will oversee the delivery of HUD programs and services to communities, and evaluate their efficiency and effectiveness. Keogh is one of 10 regional directors in the United States.
For nearly 30 years, Keogh has made his living in broadcasting with the six-station, Maine-based Downeast Broadcasting group, serving as owner and general manager of the group from 1987 until its sale in 2000.
From 1994-2000, Keogh focused his attention on revamping and making more profitable
Portland station WTHT, one of the group. During that time he worked with the
Federal Communications Commission to double the station's wattage. He also revised
the station's programming and increased advertising sales more than seven-fold.
