A good Electrical contractor may be able to "fish" the wires behind the wall. i would check there first, maybe send pictures of what you have ,so they can see and give you a free estimate.

In most areas a handyman is allowed to do this type of drywall work. since electricians and HVAC guys occasionally damage drywall, they may know some great repair people, just ask around.

In addition to electrician (definitely right category if you need a new power outlet), for TV cables (cable TV, antenna feeds, audio to remote speakers) other potentially applicable categories include TV Service - Cable, TV Antenna, and Stereo & Home Theater Systems - the latter is probably your best bet as they may be able to do the wall repair too.

If you are looking for drywall repair only - Handyman probably cheapest if you find one that can do a clean, smooth job - otherwise Drywall for major access hole repairs, or Painter for painting plus spackling small (less than about 1/2 inch or so) holes just used to feed the wire through. The repair itself will only be an hour or so, dry overnight, recoat the joints, come back and final sand then dry a day before priming, dry before painting - so the more you can DIY the better. Not hardto do, just tedious to learn how to bevel cut the joint edges and tape the joints up front so they are smooth, but you can always redo as needed to get it right.

Other DIY option for antenna, speaker cables - surface mount electrical track like this example -
