Cell Journalist exec leaves for Florida TV station

Media industry veteran Steve Sabato has left his executive vice president post at Cell Journalist to be director of news and digital content at WWSB, the ABC affiliate in Sarasota, Fla. Sabato had joined Cell Journalist, which has developed a social media platform, in 2007 after being shuffled out of the news director slot at WKRN News 2.

"Steve is a highly regarded news executive with an impressive track record in broadcast news and digital media," said Benninghoff. "Steve has a history of building strong news brands and is an authority and innovator on multi-platform content strategy. I am very pleased that he will now put his impressive skills to work for our great station."
