Under the new structure, former executive director Erik Lewis will assume the role of chief executive officer (CEO), focusing more on policy, strategic planning, “The Local Live” News Show and fundraising; while former associate director Matt Sullivan will assume the position of chief operating officer (COO) running the day-to-day operations of the local cable TV network and focusing on community outreach.
“We rely on Erik's broad experience and guidance as we move toward a consolidation of our operations to better fulfill our mission,” said Meighan.
LMCTV serves the tri-municipality (Villages of Mamaroneck and Larchmont and Town of Mamaroneck) by covering news, governmental meetings, board of education meetings, the arts and culture, community events, educational events and offers unique original programming. The network airs on channels 75, 76, 77 on Cablevision and 34, 35, 36 on Verizon/FiOS.
“For more than 15 years, Erik has been the face of LMCTV in our communities,” Meighan said. “Thankfully, we are not losing Erik, but gaining the expanded public managerial role of COO for Matt."
“Matt will be making the ‘community connection’ come alive,” he added. “This is a win-win for LMCTV and our viewing public.”
Sullivan, a native of Mamaroneck, continues his career in television which started under the tutelage of LMCTV Vice President Michael Witsch, while attending Mamaroneck High School. After studying film at Emerson College in Boston, Sullivan took his career to Los Angeles, working on several network television shows including Deal or no Deal, The Office, 24, House and Castle.
"I'm happy to bring all of my experience back home and continue the mission of LMCTV," Sullivan said.
In over five years working at LMCTV, Sullivan has redesigned the website, initiated a campaign for a new logo, allowed for LMCTV channels to be streamed online, transitioned to YouTube hosted videos, initiated indexed government meetings available on the Internet and created an e-newsletter.
