I want to thank Louis for his years of service at NewBay and wish him all the best on his future endeavors.”

Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News are fantastic brands,” said Hillelson. “I am honored to have been part of their storied history. The sales and edit teams are among the best I have worked with, and I will look forward to seeing them continue the TV Sector’s growth and momentum, and wish them continued success in serving this vital, dynamic industry.”
