Jimmy Cromwell Upped To VP-GM at WJTV-WHLT

Jimmy Cromwell will take over as vice president and general manager at two Media General stations in Mississippi, WJTV in Jackson and WHLT in Hattiesburg, on September 19. Both stations are CBS affiliates.

The move marks a promotion for Cromwell, who has been WJTV’s director of revenue since 2009. Before that, he has held sales management positions at Birmingham’s WBMA, Atlanta’s WGCL and Jacksonville’s WJXX.

“Jimmy is a sales veteran and his familiarity with the region and our Jackson and Hattiesburg markets makes him well-suited to deliver for us,” John Cottingham, Media General’s Mid-South president and market leader.

Cromwell replaces Robert Romine, who starts as president and general manager of WSPA-WYCW in Spartanburg next week.
