WCAU GM Dennis Bianchi Joining Rival WTXF

Dennis Bianchi, the general manager at Philadelphia NBC O&O WCAU, will join rival WTXF, the Fox O&O, as vice president and general manager next month, Fox announced today.

Bianchi, who has been at NBC for more than 25 years in a variety of roles, has been general manager of WCAU since 1998. His first day at WTXF will be February 1.

“While we typically promote from within, we feel lucky and particularly excited about hiring an executive of Dennis’ caliber,” Jack Abernethy, CEO of Fox Television Stations, said in a statement.

Bianchi replaces Patrick Paolini, who was promoted to SVP of Station Sales at Fox last fall.
