The promotions are effective immediately; both men will continue reporting to Nexstar Media’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Tom Carter.
“Patrick and Randy exemplify the best of Nexstar’s accounting and finance teams and are extremely deserving of these promotions,” said Mr. Carter. “They are intimately familiar with Nexstar’s operations and are disciplined and rigorous in their approach to supporting our business units and leading the corporate services teams. Their analysis of financial data is second to none—they did exceptional work on our recent highly-accretive acquisition of Tribune Media Company and both of them will play a critical role in the ongoing process of integrating these two great companies. Patrick and Randy have helped us build a very strong team in our accounting and finance departments and I am looking forward to continuing to work with them for many years to come.”
