Chuck Carter is joining WPIX, Tribune’s CW affiliate in New York City, as managing editor. He begins April 28 and will report to news director Mark Effron.
“Chuck is a seasoned broadcast news executive with a proven record of delivering ratings growth. I’m thrilled he is joining our team as we continue to develop PIX11 News,” Effron said in a statement.
Carter joins WPIX from WTIC, Tribune’s Fox affiliate in Hartford. The move reunites him with general manager Rich Graziano, who joined WPIX from WTIC last year.
With the announcement of Carter’s hire, Amy Waldman and Sharon Van Zwieten are taking on new roles at WPIX. Waldman, who was named managing editor last year, will be the new senior executive producer for all newscasts. Van Zwieten, formerly the senior executive producer, will move into a news talent project management role, WPIX says.
