The board of directors of Mid-State MultiMedia Group, including the Johnny Appleseed Broadcasting Corporation, GSM Media Corporation and Mid-State Television Incorporated, is announcing the promotion of Robert E. Meisse to president and general manager of the corporations.
  Meisse succeeds his father, Gunther Meisse, who will continue as corporate chairman.

Mid-State MultiMedia Group commenced broadcast operations in Mansfield in 1962 from their studio and transmitter facility at 2900 Park Avenue West and operates Mansfield radio stations WVNO-FM, WRGM-AM/FM, The Light-FM, television stations WMFD and WOHZ, as well as web operations, including www.WMFD.com.

Robert Meisse joined the organization full-time upon graduation from North Central State College in 1992.
He has been a member of virtually every department and spearheaded the creation of WMFD Digital Television, the first independent digital TV station in the U.S.

Meisse directed the conversion of WMFD Television to high definition as well as the upgrading of WVNO-FM to Mansfield's first high definition radio station.

With his I-T background, he created and implemented north central Ohio's most widely viewed web sites and most recently served as general manager of the broadcast cluster.

Meisse was born in Mansfield and resides with his wife, Jennifer, and four children, Brigitte, Bria, Brynn and Miles, who attend Ontario Schools.

A strong supporter of economic development, he has served on many boards and committees, including the Mansfield Art Center, Ontario Growth, National Ski Patrol, Akron Children's Miracle Network and others.

Serving as producer for many years, he has helped the Children's Miracle Network, the Rehab Center and other non-profits raise more than $20 million.

 As a producer, Meisse has been nominated for a Cleveland Emmy Award.

His hobbies include maple syrup production, honey bees, reef aquariums, watching and coaching soccer with the Mansfield Crew, skiing and spending time with his family.
