Sinclair Broadcast Group announced this week that Scott Livingston, currently the news director of the company’s flagship station, WBFF in Baltimore, has been named vice president of news for the station group.
In his new role, Livingston, who has been WBFF’s news director for the past ten years, will lead the 41 Sinclair stations that air local news.
“We are pleased to promote Scott into this well-deserving position,” Sinclair president and CEO David Smith said, announcing the promotion. “Scott has been charged with the ultimate goal of ensuring that each of our news operations is delivering high-quality, informative news stories that matter to our local audiences and make a difference in their respective markets.”
Livingston began at WBFF in 1991. He served as chief photographer until 1997, when he was promoted to assistant news director.
“Telling stories that make a difference and holding elected officials accountable are the foundation of a Sinclair news operation,” Livingston said. “I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with the stations to improve our news content and accountability journalism.”
