To that end, I am pleased to announce that Matt will be transitioning from Local Media through year end and joining Media Distribution Services full time in January 2009.”

Braatz will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations for all domestic on-air operations, as well as developing and implementing an operational and technical strategy across the company’s on-air operations organizations including the Cable Network Origination Center, the Network Broadcast Operations Center, Local Media Hub Operations, and Media Operations Group.
