Raycom SVP Edelman Retiring

Broadcast vet will focus on family and friends

EdelmanRaycom Senior VP of Television Marty Edelman (left) is retiring at the end of August. Edelman has been at Raycom for the past decade, during which the group more than doubled its number of stations to its current batch of 41.

Edelman, who turns 65 next month, says he wants to travel and enjoy family time while relocating to Florida. "I'm just going to enjoy my life and just kind of decompress," he says. 

No successor has been named.

Prior to joining Raycom in 1999, Edelman was the West Coast VP at Granite Broadcasting, and had been the general manager at Granite stations in Detroit and Fresno. He culminates a 40-year career next month. "If I had to do it all over again, I'd do it the same way," Edelman says.
