Steve Pruett, co-chief operating oficer of Sinclair's television group, announced the news.
“Tim has displayed great leadership and direction to the staff in Savannah during his time as general sales manager," Pruett said. "We look forward to the continued growth in the station’s performance and ratings under Tim and as we expand our operation at WTGS.”
