Justin Antoniotti Named News Director at WTAE

Justin Antoniotti will take over as news director of WTAE, Hearst Television’s ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh, beginning today.

It is a move within Hearst for Antoniotti, who comes from WYFF in Greenville, S.C. He has been news director there since 2007. Before that, he was the assistant news director at WISN in Milwaukee, another Hearst station.

“I have been very fortunate to have already worked at two great Hearst Television properties,”Antoniotti said in a statement.  “To now be able to move to WTAE is very special.  I look forward to working with the talented Channel 4 Action News Team and building on the great legacy at WTAE.”

Antoniotti replaces Alex Bongiorno, who left WTAE for “personal and family reasons,” according to general manager Michael Hayes.
