Being promoted to the lead role for ABC affiliate WLOS-13, which focused on Asheville, and Greenville-Spartanburg’s WMYA-TV, is Courtney Youngblood.

Both stations cover a unique DMA, which straddles the two Carolinas.

Youngblood has been with Sinclair since May 2000, when she became an account executive for FOX affiliate WZTV-17 in Nashville. In February 2005, she shifted to Asheville, becoming NSM for WMYA & WLOS. Youngblood was promoted to LSM in August 2009, and in May 2017 ascended to her most current position.

“We believe that her long history in television sales and 16 years in the Asheville market make her a natural fit to head our stations here,” said Rob Weisbord, President of Broadcast and Chief Advertising Revenue Officer at Sinclair.
