Tom Davis Promoted to News Director at WPVI

Longtime assistant news director Tom Davis has been named vice president and news director at WPVI.

Davis, who has been the ABC O&O’s assistant ND since 2004, takes over for Carla Carpenter.  After 14 years leading the WPVI newsroom, Carpenter recently left the station to become senior vice president of digital media for ABC owned stations.

“Tom’s promotion is well deserved,” WPVI president and general manager Bernie Prazenica said, in announcing the move.  “He has distinguished himself as a top flight news manager over two decades, and is uniquely qualified to lead Action News into the future on television, online, and on all mobile platforms.”

Before joining WPVI, Davis was the assistant ND at WJLA in D.C. and, prior to that, he worked as an executive producer at stations in Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio.
