Castano named VP and GM of WLNE-TV ABC 6

PROVIDENCE – Citadel Communications LLC has named Tina Marie Castano as vice president and general manager of Southern New England broadcaster WLNE-TV ABC 6, it announced Tuesday.

Castano is returning to ABC 6 from WLWC-TV CW 28, where she most recently served as the station’s general manager. She began at ABC 6 in 1988, where she worked until 2004 in various roles such as national sales manager.

“It is always gratifying to see talented colleagues assume new responsibilities, but especially so when it involves individuals with long histories of dedicated service to a television station and community,” said ACB 6’s president and COO Ray Cole in a prepared statement.

Castano’s new role was most recently held by Chris Tzianabos, who was named vice president and general manager in 2011.
