VAIL, Colorado – Vail Resorts said Tuesday that Steve Wodlinger has been named general manager of TV8 and TV17, effective Thursday. Wodlinger will oversee all television operations for the two Vail Valley stations. Wodlinger will report directly to Chris Jarnot, senior vice president and chief operating officer for Vail Mountain.

“Steve has a long, successful track record of generating revenue by developing value for clients through media sales,” Jarnot said. “I’m confident that he will continue that track record with TV8 and TV17 and bring his ingenuity to the development of new programming concepts and the enhancement of existing concepts.”

A Vail Valley local since the mid-’90s, Wodlinger has more than 30 years experience in the media industry, most recently as CEO of NRC Broadcasting, which includes 12 radio stations that serve Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, Vail and Aspen. Prior to his move to the Vail Valley, Wodlinger held various positions in sales, management and ownership with broadcast companies across the country including Clear Channel Communications in Naples/Ft. Meyers, Fl. He is a graduate of the University of Denver.

“I am looking forward to focusing on growing a well known Vail Resorts brand in the community where I live, and am fortunate to be joining a tremendous team of professionals at TV 8 and TV 17,” Wodlinger said.

TV8 and TV17 are available from East Vail to Edwards through Comcast and parts of Wolcott, Cordillera, Eagle and Eagle Ranch through CenturyLink. For more information about TV8 and TV17, visit tv8vail.com.
