Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On July 28, 2021, the Board of Directors of Nexstar Media Group, Inc. (the "Company") formally appointed Lee Ann Gliha, 46, as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company effective August 9, 2021. Ms. Gliha's qualification include more than 20 years of experience in media, broadcasting, and entertainment investment banking. From April 2016 to July 2021, Ms. Gliha served as a Managing Director at Jefferies LLC ("Jefferies"). Prior to joining Jefferies, she served as a Managing Director at Houlihan Lokey from 2008 to 2016. Ms. Gliha is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Hot Rod Association since December 2019.

In conjunction with her appointment, Ms. Gliha entered into an Executive Employment Agreement (the "Employment Agreement") with the Company, effective as of August 9, 2021. The initial term of the Employment Agreement ends on July 31, 2025, and the term will automatically renew for successive one-year periods, subject to earlier termination provided under the Employment Agreement.

Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, Ms. Gliha shall be entitled to an annual base salary of $700,000 beginning August 9, 2021, subject to annual increases, but not decreases, at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") of the Company. In addition, Ms. Gliha will be eligible to receive an annual bonus in the amount of up to seventy-five percent (75%) of her annual base salary in effect at the end of that fiscal year, or in excess of such amount, up to a maximum of one hundred fifty percent (150%) of her annual base salary in effect at the end of that fiscal year, as determined by the CEO with the approval of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, prorated for any partial fiscal year during which Ms. Gliha is employed by the Company based on the following criteria:



    •   50% earned if Nexstar Media Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the
        Company, exceeds ninety percent (90%) of budgeted Net Revenue or EBIDTA
        (as such terms are defined in the Employment Agreement) for the applicable
        fiscal year.




  • 50% earned at the discretion of the CEO and/or Compensation Committee.

Ms. Gliha will also receive a relocation bonus of $30,000, subject to applicable taxes and the terms of the Company's relocation benefit program.

Ms. Gliha will be eligible to participate in the Company's equity compensation program on a basis consistent with the other Company executives. Within 15 days from August 9, 2021, the Company will grant 10,000 restricted stock units ("RSUs") to Ms. Gliha, as follows:



  Time-Vesting RSUs     Performance-Based RSUs
              5,000 (a)                  5,000 (b)


   (a) The Time-Vesting RSUs is subject to a four-year vesting period and will

       the award, subject to Ms. Gliha's continued employment with the Company on
       such dates.


   (b) The Performance-Based RSUs is subject to a four-year vesting period and
       will vest in equal annual installments of 1,250 RSUs on each anniversary
       date of the award, if the Total Shareholder Return for each such preceding
       calendar year exceeds the midpoint of the Company's Total Shareholder
       Return ranking within its Peer Group (as defined in the Employment
       Agreement).



In the event of Ms. Gliha's termination of employment by the Company for any reason other than for Cause (including Ms. Gliha's termination of employment in connection with a Change in Control (as such terms are defined in the Employment Agreement)) or due to Ms. Gliha's resignation with Good Reason (as defined in the Employment Agreement), subject to Ms. Gliha's execution of the Separation Agreement and Release (as defined in the Employment Agreement) within 60 days of termination of employment, Ms. Gliha will be eligible to receive severance payments consisting of (i) an amount equal to 12-months of her then-current annual base salary, payable in a lump sum within 60 days of such termination of employment, (ii) a prorated bonus based on (A) actual performance if such termination is by the Company for any reason other than for Cause, or (B) Ms. Gliha's target bonus in effect if such termination is by Ms. Gliha for Good Reason, and (iii) an additional lump sum payment equal to $29,000. The Employment Agreement also provides that if Ms. Gliha's employment is terminated due to her death or disability, Ms. Gliha will be eligible to receive her earned but unpaid annual bonus for the year prior to the year of such termination, as well as payment of a prorated portion of her annual bonus for the year of such termination based on actual performance.
