In this role, Malloy will be responsible for overseeing the stations’ operations across all platforms, as well as community outreach efforts and driving results for advertisers. Malloy will replace Brian Cliffe, who is retiring after 42 years in the broadcasting business, the last 34 in Maine.

“Micah’s professional track record makes him the perfect choice to lead the NEWS CENTER Maine team,” said Paul Trelstad, senior vice president, media operations, TEGNA. “As a leader who epitomizes the stations’ service mantra, ‘Doing Good Together,’ Micah has worked side-by-side with his colleagues to make great things happen in Portland and Bangor.

Malloy has been with the Maine stations for eleven years, most recently as director of sales, a position he’s held since 2016. Previously he was local sales manager from 2013-2016. As a sales leader, Malloy successfully led the sales team to energize the local economy by connecting NEWS CENTER Maine consumers with the products and services they want and need.

Malloy’s extensive career in marketing and media includes sales management roles at Time Warner Cable in Maine and at radio stations in both Portland and Bangor. He also served as marketing director for one of Maine’s largest automotive groups.

Added Malloy, “Taking on this responsibility is truly humbling. Leading a team that's dedicated to improving life in Maine through our work is a privilege. I'm excited to keep pushing our mission to be the most trusted and reliable source for local news, weather, sports, and all the things that make our state and its people special. My family has watched NEWS CENTER Maine for generations, so it's an honor to guide the team to be the best for our viewers and clients.”
