Courtney Youngblood Named Sinclair GM In Asheville
Sinclair Broadcast Group today promoted Courtney Youngblood to vice president and general manager of its ABC affiliate WLOS Asheville, N.C. She will also oversee Sinclair’s provision of services to WMYA (MNT).
Rob Weisbord, Sinclair president of broadcast and chief advertising revenue officer, said: “Courtney started her career with Sinclair more than 20 years ago, steadily climbing from account exec to now leading the stations in Asheville. 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.”
Youngblood currently is the director of sales for WLOS and WMYA. She first joined Sinclair 21 years ago, as an account executive in Nashville. In 2005, she moved to Asheville and worked as the national sales manager, was promoted to local sales manager in 2009, and most recently, served as director of sales since 2017.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Henry Grady College of Journalism at the University of Georgia.
