INDIANAPOLIS � Society of Broadcast Engineers President Jerry Massey has appointed Vinny Lopez to fill the open position on the organization�s board of directors. He was confirmed by the executive committee Jan. 28 and his term will end in fall 2018.

Lopez is chief engineer at Sinclair Broadcast Group�s WSTM(TV), WTVH(TV) and WSTQ(LP) in Syracuse, N.Y. He is a member of SBE Chapter 22 Central New York, which he has led in the past as chapter chair and vice chair; he is currently chapter secretary.

�Vinny has an established track record with the SBE, and I�m glad to have him return to service on the board of directors. His SBE and industry experience are a valuable asset,� Massey said.
