Group Vice President Brad Streit said, "I have known Nick for almost 15 years as a solid, outgoing leader. He is a visionary and problem solver with a long track record of effectively bringing people together to accomplish great things."

Ulmer said, "I feel extremely fortunate to have been chosen to lead the KOLD team in Tucson. I look forward to working at a great TV station, making my new home in such a beautiful part of the country and becoming a part of the wonderful community in Tucson and Southern Arizona."

Ulmer started his career on the advertising agency side of the business and quickly moved to WLRS FM Radio in Louisville, KY, where he served as an account executive and general sales manager. Ulmer later joined the sales staff at WAVE in Louisville. Ulmer rose to national sales manager, general sales manager, and station manager while at WAVE. Ulmer's accomplishments include being named the American Advertising Federation President of the Year in 1998 and a member of the TVB Sales Advisory Board of Directors from 2003 to 2009.

Ulmer and his wife, Susie, have been married for 38 years. They have three sons and two grandchildren.
