Mission Broadcasting has named Stephen Daniloff as corporate director of sales.

Daniloff most recently served as VP and general manager of Nexstar Broadcasting’s WBRE-TV, Wilkes Barre, Pa. At Mission, he will manage an office in Solon, Ohio, and report directly to Dennis Thatcher, Mission’s president.

“Steve Daniloff brings a wealth of industry background to this position. He knows every aspect of spot sales and digital sales for today’s contemporary television station,” said Thatcher. “He has a proven, long-term record of success, matched by a meticulous approach to every detail. Nancie Smith [Mission’s chair] and I have great confidence in his ability to manage and train our Mission Sales Team.”

Before WBRE, Daniloff was director of sales for WSAV-TV, Savannah, Ga.; VP and general sales manager for AT&T’s regional sports network in Pittsburgh and regional sales manager for Scripps’ WEWS-TV, Cleveland. 

“I am excited to be chosen for this newly created position with this growing broadcast television group,” Daniloff said. “This is an exceptional opportunity to work with an exceptional company. I am looking forward to partnering with our salespeople and helping local businesses grow and thrive as we emerge from these difficult times.”

Mission owns 21 TV stations in 18 U.S. DMAs.
