Chris Dautel has joined the Schurz Communications corporate staff as Electronic Division Controller and Strategic Analyst.
Chris has been the Vice President of Finance and Business Affairs for WSBT-TV for the last seven years.
In addition, a portion of his time has been allocated to Schurz Communications, largely in the area of acquisitions.
As the SCI portfolio of stations has grown, so has the need for directed attention to financial processes and detail, as well as looking ahead to opportunities and trends within the industry, commented Marci Burdick, SCI Senior Vice President Electronics Division.
“Chris has demonstrated his skill and unique qualifications in those areas,” she said.
Dautel will report directly to Burdick, but will collaborate with the SCI Financial team.
Prior to joining WSBT, Chris was Director of Financial Planning and Analysis for Raycom Media.
Chris and his wife Lauren are the parents of 2 children, Daniel age 14 and Mckenna age 7, and live in Granger, Indiana.
The new business manager at WSBT is Debbie Klarke who has been business manager for the WSBT Radio Group.
