Sinclair Shakeup: Holly Steuart Departs WHP Harrisburg

Three GMs leave their stations as Sinclair closes on Newport acquisition

There's another general manager shakeup upon Sinclair's
closing of its Newport TV deal, as Holly Steuart was dismissed from her spot at
WHP Harrisburg-Lancaster. Sinclair closed on the six Newport stations Dec. 3,
resulting in the departures of three general managers: Les Vann at WKRC
Cincinnati, Jackie Rutledge at WOAI San Antonio, and Steuart in DMA No. 43.

"They said they wouldn't go forward with me, that they
were bringing a new person in," Steuart said.

Steuart did not know who her successor would be, and
Sinclair had not yet named the person.

She spent 4 ½ years at the station, a CBS affiliate, and
said she took pride in turning around a formerly underperforming local TV

In July, Sinclair announced it was acquiring six stations from
Newport for $412.5 million.

On Dec. 3, Sinclair
also picked up WHAM Rochester from Newport.
