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.

Prior to that, Keogh oversaw the successful start-up of WQSS in Camden, another of the group's stations. Beginning in 1987, Keogh designed the station's layout, oversaw its construction, hired and trained staff, worked with the FCC in planning and implementing the station's engineering and technical requirements, developed and implemented sales and programming strategies, and managed the day-to-day operations of the station.

Keogh graduated in 1972 from the University of Dayton with a degree in communications. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Southern Maine and was the chairman of the Maine Republican Party in 1992 and from 1994-98.
