WEHCO Video names Greg Argetsinger president; Paul Morbeck to retire after 54-year career


WEHCO Video has announced that Greg Argetsinger will succeed Paul Morbeck as president, overseeing cable operations across four states. Morbeck will retire after 24 years with the company.

Argetsinger will oversee the operations of Longview Cable Television, Resort Cable Television, Pine Bluff Cable Television, White County Video, East Arkansas Video, Vicksburg Video, Tahlequah Cable Television, Cam-Tel Cable Television and Hope Cable Television.

Argetsinger has been a leader in the broadband industry for over 30 years with experience delivering business strategies, driving sales, maximizing cash flow and developing award winning teams. With a career path beginning as a frontline employee, he successfully advanced to major market management positions — both domestic and international.

"Greg is a proven leader in the broadband industry, his experience in leading cable division teams along with a strategic and operational mindset will be an asset to our company,” said Nat Lea, president and CEO of WEHCO Media, Inc. "We have an outstanding and long tenured team of leaders in WEHCO Video. I am confident we have chosen the right leader to work with us. We welcome Greg and his wife, Isabella, to Little Rock.”

For the last two years, Argetsinger worked as senior vice president and general manager for field and operations at Point Broadband in Alabama. He has prior experience managing operations of cable companies domestically in Ohio, Georgia and Illinois and internationally in Romania and Japan.

Argetsinger and his wife will be relocating to the Little Rock area. "I am excited to join the WEHCO team,” said Argetsinger. “I look forward to working together to build on the strong tradition of providing outstanding service for our customers and communities.”

Morbeck is retiring after 54 years in the cable television and broadband industry. “My time with WEHCO has been absolutely terrific,” Morbeck said. “Walter Hussman and Nat Lea gave me the opportunity to work alongside of them in a remarkable transition from analog TV through digital and then to become the very best broadband provider in the communities we serve. I will forever be grateful to them for that.”

“It has been my pleasure to work with Paul, and I certainly wish him well in his retirement,” said Lea. “I want to thank him for the 24 years of service to our company. Paul has led the improvement of our operations at every turn. He has improved our technical capabilities, our marketing capabilities and our training. In more recent years, he has led the expansion of our company’s footprint. We have appreciated his dedication and leadership. He will be missed.”
