Tegna has decided that one of the top executives at its soon-to-be-owned Dispatch Broadcast Group is worth having around.

The company has named Dispatch’s president Larry Delia as Tegna’s senior vice president of media operations.

He will oversee current Tegna stations as well as WTHR and WBNS, the two former Dispatch stations.

“With more than three decades of broadcast experience, Larry brings a wealth of industry and operational expertise to TEGNA,” said Lynn Beall, executive vice president and COO for media operations, TEGNA. “Larry’s vision and leadership will be a great asset as we continue to grow, and we are excited to welcome him to the team.”

Delia’s been the top dog at Dispatch since 2016.


His career started with ABC Television Network.


Delia also spent 10 years at WTIC in Hartford, Conn. before serving as general manager for various stations.
