Hasson was principal/president of MultiPlatform Distribution Company, a television production and distribution company. From 1990 through 2005, he was at NBC Universal Television Distribution.
"Arthur's background in television distribution, as well as his experience in integrating social media, offers Sinclair a unique opportunity to utilize his talents both on a local and company-wide level," said Steve Marks, COO of Sinclair. "We look forward to incorporating Arthur's creative spirit in the stations' consumer and viewer outreach."
Sinclair closed on its acquisition of the station Dec. 3, and dismissed former general manager Holly Steuart.
"I am thrilled for this opportunity to lead WHP and WLYH under the ownership and oversight of Sinclair, an innovative and forward thinking broadcaster," said Hasson. "I believe the support and resources Sinclair brings will provide for an improved viewer experience, a stronger news presence, and enhanced access for our advertisers to reach our audience."
WHP is a CBS affiliate and WLYH is a CW. Nexstar owns WLYH.
