By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Nexstar has named a new general manager at the company’s Tampa stations WFLA and WTTA, the NBC and MyNetworkTV affiliate.

Skip Valet will oversee programming, content development, station management and new business development.

“I am grateful for this opportunity to return to my home state and am excited to extend my three-decade long record of service in Florida, where I have deep personal, business and community relationships. Nexstar’s long-term success is a result of its dedication to the local communities it serves across the United States and I look forward to building on the Company’s achievements in my new role,” Valet said.

Valet was most recently the general manager at WTKRWGNT in Norfolk, VA where he led the complete re-branding and realignment of both stations’ news programming. Under his leadership, WTKR-TV increased newscast ratings across all day time slots.

From 2009 to 2015, he served as vice president and general manager of WKMG-TV in Orlando, FL. Prior to that he worked in Houston and Jacksonville.

Valet earned his degree from the University of North Florida.
