Lee Meredith is a career broadcaster now pursuing new professions as a teacher and digital consultant. Meredith retired from Raycom Media in 2018 after 20 years of service for the company as a television station general manager. During that span, he was named "GM of the Year" by Broadcasting & Cable, selected as "Broadcaster of the Year" by the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters and inducted into the Silver Circle by the Nashville/Midsouth chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Meredith began his career as an award-winning television news reporter, before moving to producing and news management roles.
