The Tribune New York CW affiliate promotes Adam Shapiro from local sales manager.
WPIX, Tribune Broadcasting’s New York CW affiliate, has named Adam Shapiro general sales manager. Shapiro’s promotion to GSM is effective immediately.
Shapiro moves up from local sales manager, a position he has held at the station since 2005. In his new role as GSM, he will oversee the station’s entire sales force including local and national sales, new business and internet sales.
Shapiro has been a part of WPIX’s sales division since 1998 when he joined the station as an account executive. Less than a year later he was promoted to national sales manager, and in 2005 he was elevated to local sales manager.
He has worked in broadcast advertising sales for 16 years, and began his media career at TeleRep in New York, where he was an account executive from 1993 to 1998.
