She joined NCC in November of 2003 after a seven-year stint with NBC, most recently as senior VP of ad sales for the Telemundo station group. Earlier in her career, she was with CBS in various sales positions.
In a statement, NCC President Greg Schaefer said, "Gina was a rare spirit, and she became a leader, guiding force and friend to many of us at NCC, our clients and our affiliates in the short time she was here. She will be remembered forever and missed terribly."
