It is also at this time, that Steve Smith will depart SCA. “Steve has been an integral part of the regional media business for over 28 years and we thank him for his significant contribution,” said SCA.
Executive director of regional operations Rick Lenarcic said: “I am excited about the new structural changes in our regional hubs. We have a very experienced and dedicated team and I look forward to seeing the ongoing success of our consistently strong performing SCA regional assets.”
