News/Talk WTMJ and WKTI (94.5 KTI Country) Milwaukee appoints Bill Herriott as Director of Sales and National Sales Manager. In his role, he will lead the revenue team for the Scripps Radio duo, while concentrating on the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers networks. Most recently, Herriott was the General Sales Manager for WLS Chicago.

"Bill is a dedicated, mature, battle-tested, experienced leader who knows how to accomplish goals in a very competitive marketplace-and he most certainly understands how to lead at legendary stations like ours," said Scripps Radio Milwaukee VP/GM Tom Langmyer. "Bill has driven strong results, selling major league teams. I saw this firsthand at WGN in Chicago with the Cubs, Blackhawks and other team partners - and it will be great to see what he'll do here with the Packers and Brewers."

"WTMJ and WKTI are legendary brands in Wisconsin and beyond," added Herriott. "It's unbelievable that one opportunity combines these major stations with the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Bucks. No one offers what we can offer to our advertisers. I'm excited to join such a great group of broadcasting and marketing professionals."

Herriott has nearly twenty years of sales leadership experience, including serving as Local Sales Manager at WGN-AM Chicago, Director of Sports Sales for WGN-TV Chicago and as Sales Manager at WBBM-AM Chicago. Herriott is a native of the suburbs of Chicago. He starts in his new role on Monday, October 9.

Concurrently, current WKTI General Sales Manager Eric Lauer has been promoted to General Sales Manager for both WTMJ and WKTI. Lauer joined Scripps as the General Sales Manager for WKTI in September, 2016 from Cox Media Group in Jacksonville, FL.

"We're also very fortunate to have the confident and encouraging leadership of Eric Lauer," said Langmyer. "Eric has already made a big difference with our WKTI team - and he's earned the opportunity to formally bring his passion and knowledge to the WTMJ team, as well."

"I have the utmost respect for the WTMJ sales team," added Lauer. "Together with the WKTI sales group we'll continue to focus on creating value for our local advertisers through our great on-air and online brands."
