LIN Media has hired Katz Television Group to be its national rep firm, shifting 35 stations from their previous sales representation at Petry. The stations include KXAN-KNVA Austin, WOOD-WOTV Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo, and WTNH-WCTX Hartford-New Haven.
The arrangement began Dec. 3.
Leo MacCourtney, president and CEO of Katz, called LIN “an extremely important piece of business” for the rep firm.
“This is a great win for Katz and we look forward to being Lin's key national sales partner,” he added.
