Holly Steuart has been named vice president and general manager at WTVM, Raycom Media’s ABC affiliate in Columbus, Ga.
Until December, Steuart was general manager at WHP, the CBS affiliate in Harrisburg, Pa. She was let go when Sinclair Broadcasting bought the station from Newport Television. She has also worked as general manager of KFYR-KQCD in Bismarck, N.D. and KVVU in Las Vegas.
Steuart replaces Lee Brantley, who will retire in July after 18 years at WTVM’s general manager.
“I feel really honored to follow in Lee’s footsteps and be able to have the opportunity to build on the past 18 years of his leadership,” Steuart said in a statement. “I think WTVM has a great team in every department and I’m just delighted to join them and be part of Raycom Media.”
