Hearst Television Appoints Political Ad Director
Gerry McGavick, who since 2017 has served as director of sales for Hearst Television’s ABC affiliate WMUR Manchester, N.H., will add the newly created role of director, political advertising, for Hearst Television. He will continue his sales supervision responsibilities at WMUR.
In addition to WMUR, Hearst Television’s 33 television stations and two radio stations include stations in the early presidential battleground states of Iowa and South Carolina.
“Gerry is truly one of a kind,” said Eric Meyrowitz, Hearst Television SVP, sales. “His extensive experience in New Hampshire has made him uniquely positioned for this opportunity. For years he has provided sales leadership in the political space. This is a well-deserved acknowledgment.”
McGavick began his advertising career as a media planner at ad agency Jordan McGrath Case & Taylor, moving to the New York-based ad-sales representation firm Harrington Righter & Parsons and later becoming general sales manager of WLVI Boston before moving to WMUR.
