Robert Romine will take over as president and general manager of Media General’s Spartanburg, SC duopoly WSPA-WYCW on September 19.

Romine has been the vice president of two Media General stations in Mississippi — WJTV in Jackson and WHLT in Hattiesburg — since 2003. Both stations are CBS affiliates.

“Bob has provided strong leadership in Jackson and Hattiesburg, and he has had an outstanding career in the broadcast industry,” said John Cottingham, president and market leader for Media General’s Mid-South market. “He is the ideal executive leader for Spartanburg.”

Romine succeeds Phil Lane as general manager at WSPA-WYCW, which are the CBS and CW affiliates in the market. Before joining Media General, Romine was VP-GM of WYTV in Youngstown, OH and WHQA in Quincy, IL.
