SINCLAIR BROADCAST GROUP has upped SVP/Operations and Engineering DELBERT R. PARKS, III to SVP/CTO and Corporate Dir./Engineering HARVEY ARNOLD to VP/Engineering.
EVP/COO DAVID AMY said, "We are pleased to announce the promotions of DEL and HARVEY, who have contributed much success to their departments in their combined 57 years with SINCLAIR. As the Company has had tremendous growth in the last few years, there is an increased need for more oversight and strong leadership over the Engineering, Technology and Television Operations departments. This is especially important as we take on new stations, broaden our content offerings and distribution platforms, expand and improve our infrastructure, make advances in new technology, and develop new ways of monetizing our spectrum.
"DEL has been a leader in this organization where he has spent the last 40 years of his professional career. He has handled the oversight and transition of the acquisition stations into our portfolio, as well as the planning, organization and implementation of operational and engineering policies and strategies as they relate to television operations, Internet activity, information management systems, and infrastructure.
"We are confident in HARVEY's abilities to lead the Engineering department given his strong work ethic, knowledge of the industry and the respect he has earned of the regional engineers at the stations and others within the industry. For the past 17 years, he has been responsible for the engineering activities of the Company by supporting over 160 television stations and the transition of the acquisition stations into our portfolio."
