In this new role, he will be responsible “for overseeing the execution and expansion of the company’s strategic local content and viewer engagement initiatives across its broadcast and digital media operations.”
Earning the promotion is Dan Salamone, who has been WTEN-10 in Albany-Schenectady-Troy’s News Director since December 2016.
Before that he spent one year as Executive Producer for the FOX station serving Chicago, WFLD-32.

Salamone reports to corporate Vice President/Local Content Development Jerry Walsh.
Walsh said, “Dan brings to his new position a deep understanding of local news programming and production, digital and social media integration, content monetization and strategic planning and brand positioning across multiple media platforms. Importantly, he has a proven record of identifying new revenue-generating opportunities and developing unique digital and mobile concepts that enhanced audience reach and engagement. Throughout Dan’s career, his initiatives focused on local content leadership and excellence in viewer and client experience have consistently led to ratings and revenue share growth at the stations he has served. With his commitment to broadcast journalism and innovative cross-platform storytelling, Dan is an exceptional addition to the Nexstar’s corporate content management team.
