SCRIPPS HOWARD BROADCASTING NAMES GENERAL MANAGER FOR WMAR-TV, BALTIMORE

 CINCINNATI, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Richmond, Va., television executive Joe Lewin has been named vice president and general manager of Baltimore's WMAR-TV. The position becomes effective Nov. 1, according to Frank Gardner, Scripps Howard Broadcasting's (NASDAQ: SCRP) executive vice president.
 "Joe Lewin will be a dynamic addition to our operations at WMAR," said Gardner. "It will not take long for our viewers in Baltimore to recognize the impact of his talent, experience, and proven track record of success."
 Lewin has spent his entire adult life in the television industry. His most recent position as general manager of WRIC-TV in Richmond, Va., was preceded by a long tenure at WLWT-TV in Cincinnati.
 The Cincinnati native joined WLWT-TV while attending classes as a freshman at the University of Cincinnati. While at the station, he held numerous positions in the production and sales departments before being named its vice president and general manager.
 During his nine years at WRIC-TV, he oversaw a dramatic transformation of the station that included a change of its call letters and a move into a state-of-the-art production facility. Lewin has steered WRIC-TV into a high-profile, statewide image by producing daily segments for the Virginia Lottery as well as public affairs programs such as this week's gubernatorial debate.
 "Baltimore is an exciting and progressive market," said Lewin. "WMAR is a strong station with a great syndicated programing schedule and all the ingredients to be the regional news leader. The pieces are in place for WMAR to achieve market dominance."
 Gardner says the people of Baltimore will soon benefit from Lewin's commitment to community service. He is affiliated with numerous civic organizations including the Richmond Arts Council, the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and the Virginia Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Council, which he chairs.
 His standards of excellence have been recognized by his peers, as evidenced by his two Emmy Awards for production and service as past president of the Virginia Association of Broadcasters.
 Lewin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Radio/Television from the University of Cincinnati.
 He and his wife, Dee, have four children: Chris, Andy, Joel and Cara.
