Jeff Krolik, Sinclair

Years in Industry: 41

Education: BA, Dartmouth

Krolik came over to Sinclair when it completed its acquisition of the Fox Sports Regional networks last summer, but the role was only temporary. Now that he’s helped with the transition, the well-respected exec is set to retire at the end of August with Universal Studios vet Steven Rosenberg to succeed him. He has big shoes to fill, with Krolik’s tenure at Fox Sports and Sinclair including more than 40 team rights agreements and record profitability.
