COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - We are now almost half way through 2015 and my how time has sped by.
For me, this summer marks my coming to Columbia as the new General Manager of WIS.
It is an incredible opportunity for me to continue the rich media leadership that this television station has brought to the Midlands for more than 60 years!
I have been in TV station management for more than 35 years and I understand the issues, the concerns and the characteristics of TV news viewers. I come to the Midlands from Greenville, North Carolina, where I was active on the chamber of commerce board, the Craven Community College board and the Twin Rivers YMCA Board of Directors.
Above all, I would like to thank you, the viewers of WIS-TV for your belief in our mission as local journalists and our mission as a local television station to support and grow local businesses in the Midlands.
Now it is time to focus on the last half of the year and we will do it with curiosity, enthusiasm, and integrity. We won't shy away from asking tough questions or from holding the powerful accountable and your input, feedback and opinions are such an important part of that.
That is my take. What is yours?
-Lyle Schulze, Vice President and General Manager
