NEW YORK — Dean M. Goodman has been upped to chief operating officer of Paxson Communications.

Goodman will oversee the DTV operations and joint sales agreements for the company and continue to supervise ad sales, station and affiliate operations, and legislative and governmental relations.

“Dean has been instrumental in building Paxson from a radio group,” said Lowell “Bud” Paxson, company chair. “He has successfully handled the duties of chief operating officer for the last year and this formal title acknowledges and affirms his vital role to the company.”
