“As a Colorado native and ten-year Nexstar Broadcasting veteran, Sandra brings an intimate understanding of the local Grand Junction community and the Nexstar organization to her new role,” said Jones. “She has experienced tremendous success advancing our Billings operations into a position of market leadership and established a long-term record of achieving excellent financial results by implementing sales, marketing and new media initiatives that resulted in significantly better service to local viewers, businesses and community organizations.”
