Tom Griesdorn will retire next month after 14 years as president and general manager of WBNS, Dispatch Broadcasting Group’s CBS affiliate in Columbus, Ohio.
“I’ve loved my time at WBNS-10TV and working with some truly outstanding broadcasters. Now my heart is telling me it’s time to settle down and enjoy life,” Griesdorn said in a statement. “But where ever I go, that heart will hold a special place for WBNS, The Dispatch Printing Company, and the amazing people I’ve been privileged to call my ‘work’ family and my friends.”
“He has been a tremendous leader who returned the station to a position of market leadership and maintained that dominance for many, many years,” Dispatch Printing Company CEO Michael J. Fiorile said. “He hired a team of executives and newscasters who are among the best in our industry. He leaves a great legacy as he begins the next chapter of his life.”
