J. Roger Powe III has been named interim general manager at WMGM, the NBC affiliate in Wildwood-Atlantic City, N.J., according to The Press of Atlantic City.

Powe has been the station’s general sales manager since 2005. He replaces Ron Smith, who plans “to take it easy for awhile” after a decade as WMGM’s general manager.

“It’s been very gratifying to see the station grow the way it has and the improvements we’ve been able to make. I certainly wish it a long bright future,” Smith told The Press of Atlantic City.
