Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NXST) today announced the appointment of Dennis A. Miller, 56, to its Board of Directors effective February 1, 2014. Mr. Miller replaces Erik Brooks, Managing Partner of ABRY Partners, who retired from his position on the Board of Directors on January 16, 2014. Mr. Miller will serve as a Class II Director and will stand for re-election at the 2015 annual meeting of shareholders and will also serve on the Board’s Compensation Committee.

For over 25 years Mr. Miller has served as executive and venture capital investor in numerous early-stage and established media, entertainment and technology companies. Miller presently serves as the President of Operations for TV Guide Network (TVGN), a highly distributed entertainment network owned by CBS Corporation and Lionsgate.

From 2005 to 2011, Mr. Miller was a General Partner at Spark Capital, a venture capital firm that primarily invests in promising early stage internet and mobile technology companies.

During his tenure, he led investments in CSTV (sold to CBS), TVONE (sold to Comcast and Radio One), Capital IQ (sold to McGraw Hill), and K12, which went public in 2007.

Before focusing on venture capital investing, Miller served as Executive Vice President of Lionsgate, a leading global entertainment company with motion picture, television, home entertainment and digital media operations which he joined in 1998. As one of the studio’s first executives, he helped lead the creation of Lionsgate’s Television Group. From 1995 until 1998, Miller was the Executive Vice President of Sony Pictures Entertainment, a global motion picture, television and entertainment production and distribution company.
