About Us

    CBS19 has experienced a transformation within our Content Department within the last two years.

    Our content leadership team consists of:

    • Alicia Lippman (Assistant News Director)
    • Reagan Roy-Young (Brand Content Manager/Digital Content Manager)
    • Devon Heffer (Marketing Director/Content Manager)
    • Steve Jackson (Assignments Content Manager)
    • Angela Berry (Content Manager)

    The addition of these employees has allowed us to bring decades of journalistic and marketing experience into the CBS19 newsroom to better serve the East Texas community.

    In our Sales Department, we have seen success with Director of Sales Cheryl Olive, who has nearly 30 years of broadcast sales experience. Our Digital Sales Manager, Brian Burgess, has consistently surpassed digital sales goals through TEGNA Marketing Solutions and PREMION.

    Veteran Account Executive Holly Carroll was named to the 2019 TEGNA President’s Circle as one of the top sales executives in the company.

    General Manager Donna Wilson has been leading the station for the past three years, having previously worked in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With years of marketing, sales and news experience, Mrs. Wilson has moved the station in a new direction to better serve our viewers.

    Over the past two years, CBS19 and the TEGNA Foundation have donated $20,000 to local nonprofits to address critical community needs in East Texas.
