Premion, Tegna’s connected TV and over-the-top advertising unit, said it hired three new regional sales heads amid accelerating growth for streaming video.
Shawn Edwards, who had been VP of Sales for KNBC-TV, Los Angeles, becomes Premion’s regional sales manager for Los Angeles with oversight for San Francisco.
Former Comcast Spotlight exec Doug Tierney was named regional sales manager for Boston by Premion.
Tony Mastromatteo joins as regional sales manager for Mid-Atlantic, Philadelphia. He was owner of Evolution Media Group and an adjunct professor at Towson University.
