Gray Ups Joel Swisher to GM of WSAZ-WQCW Charleston-Huntington

The station group promotes him to succeed David Hughes as leader of its West Virginia NBC-CW duopoly.
Gray Television today promoted Joel Swisher to general manager of its WSAZ (NBC) and WQCW (CW) in Charleston-Huntington, W.Va. (DMA 79).

He has held sales management roles at WSAZ and WQCW since 2016. Previously, he spent 14 years in various sales and management positions at other media companies in West Virginia.

Gray said Swisher has been instrumental at WSAZ in expanding the station’s community involvement with events including “The Sternwheel Regatta”, and “Live on the Levee.”

Swisher assumes his new role on June 26 when the stations’ current leader, David Hughes, becomes the general manager of Gray’s WOIO-WUAB Cleveland.
