J. Mack Robinson does not expect his decision to step down as CEO of Gray Television Inc. to set off any shock waves. "My decision to step down should not come as a surprise to anyone, given that I’m now 85 years old," he said. His son-in-law and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Hilton H. Howell Jr., will add CEO responsibilities.
" Robert Prather Jr. remains President/COO. "I am looking forward to expanding my role with Gray and to working together with Bob Prather and all of he associates of the company to continue to improve the fine news operations and local commitment of all our television properties,” said Howell. “My family has been investors in and board members of Gray or its predecessors since the founding of KWTX-TV in Waco, Texas in 1951 and I look forward to continuing and building on that commitment going forward.”
