Ms. Salas also was instrumental in bringing telecasts of professional soccer’s “Indy Eleven” to the station. Her strategic and data-driven approach contributed to considerable revenue growth and a stronger market position for WRTV.

The dedication of these television stations and digital platforms to their communities and their commitment to delivering impactful local programming and effective advertising solutions is something I’m excited to be a part of again. I can’t wait to get started.”
