Chuck Carter Named Managing Editor at WPIX

“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.

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.
