WLWT Ups Gossard To General Sales Manager
Hearst Television’s NBC affiliate WLWT Cincinnati (DMA 37) has promoted its local sales manager, Julie Gossard, to succeed retiring General Sales Manager Mark Diangelo and take WLWT’s top sales position later this year.
Gossard has nearly 20 years in media, serving in many roles, including account executive, national sales manager and local sales manager. An Ohio native, she has spent her entire career in the Buckeye State, most recently leading the WLWT national and local sales teams for the past nine years.
“Since coming to Cincinnati, Julie has worked tirelessly in a number of management roles leading our sales team and working side-by-side with Mark to achieve our television and digital revenue goals,” said WLWT President-GM Branden Frantz. “Having directly worked with and watched Julie’s leadership qualities develop and grow, this was an easy decision. She has managed to a high standard of integrity, character, honesty and fairness, while delivering impactful results for our clients,” he added.
Gossard is a graduate of Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration. She was selected to attend the Hearst Management Institute class of 2019.
