Nashville broadcaster Dominic Mancuso has been named the new vice president and general manager of two Cleveland, Ohio, television stations owned by Raycom Media, reports Cleveland.com. Mancuso is the general manager at three Nashville stations owned by Sinclair Broadcasting — Fox affiliate WZTV, MyNet affiliate WUXP and CW affiliate WNAB. He is also the current chairman of the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters. In Cleveland, he will replace Bill Applegate, who is retiring as GM of WOIO and WUAB.
"I've been doing as much research and learning as I can long-distance, but I really start learning the day I walk in the door," Mancuso said Tuesday during a telephone interview from his office in Nashville. "That's when I'll really dig in and get to know the people and the operation there. But Cleveland is Raycom's largest market, so it's a complete thrill and honor to be chosen to lead WOIO and WUAB."
