Leo MacCourtney, president of Blair Television, has exited his post to join rival rep Katz Media Group as executive VP of agency and advertiser relations.
In the newly-created post, he will look to develop new national ad revenue, including cross-platform, for local markets for the the group, which includes Continental Television Sales, Eagle Television Sales, and Millennium Sales & Marketing.
“I am excited to have someone of Leo’s caliber join our team in this critical role,” said Jim Beloyianis, president of the Katz Television Group, said in a statement Monday. “Leo will help us expand by developing national business for our local station groups and explore new ways to capitalize on our multi-platform programs.”
