The Company announced that Scott C. Petersen, its longtime President and CEO, will be departing his executive position with the Company, effective June 15, 2012.   Mr. Petersen will continue as a member of the LodgeNet Board of Directors, a position he has held since 1991.  The Company also announced that Phillip Spencer, a LodgeNet Board Member since February 2012, has been appointed interim President and CEO of the Company.  Mr. Spencer is CEO and a member of the board of directors of Windjammer Communication, LLC, a cable television and communications company based in Overland Park, Kansas. The Company has commenced a search for Mr. Petersen's replacement.

"The Company has made significant strides during the past several years in a challenging economic environment by diversifying its revenues, designing and launching its Envision cloud-connected platform, developing a critically acclaimed mobile app, and developing an innovative new advertising platform," said R. Douglas Bradbury, LodgeNet's Chairman of the Board.  "With Mr. Petersen's departure as CEO, the Board will seek a new chief executive with the experience and proven leadership qualities to drive and accelerate the growth of the Company.  On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Mr. Petersen for his numerous contributions since 1987 as an executive officer of the Company.  I look forward to his continued contributions as a member of our Board, and wish him well as he moves on to new opportunities."

"I have been honored to be part of the LodgeNet growth story over the past twenty-five years," said Mr. Petersen.  "The Company has a highly unique and strategically valuable position within the hospitality and healthcare industries, and I look forward to contributing to its future growth as a member of its Board of Directors.  On a personal level, I am energized to be in a position to consider new and diverse opportunities to apply my interests and talents."
