Julie Szulczewski Returns to WSOC as News Director

Julie Szulczewski is returning to Charlotte as news director of WSOC-WAXN.

WSOC, an ABC-affiliate, announced today that Szulczewski, who served as a managing editor for the station before leaving a year ago, had been tapped to lead its newsroom.

“Julie brings a wealth of knowledge and a fresh perspective to WSOC-TV/WAXN-TV,” said Joe Pomilla, vice president and general manager of the Cox-owned duopoly, in announcing the move.

Szulczewski’s “fresh perspective” comes from her time with Albuquerque’s KOB, where she served as news director after leaving WSOC in early 2010.

“I’m excited and honored to have this opportunity in such a terrific newsroom,” Szulczewski said about her return to WSOC.
