WPIX Promotes Amy Waldman, Christian Taussig

WPIX has announced two promotions. Amy Waldman has been named managing editor and Christian Taussig has been named news operations manager at the New York City CW affiliate.

Waldman joined the station in 2007 as a senior producer. During her six years at WPIX, she has been executive producer of the morning newscast and, most recently, executive producer of special projects. Prior to joining WPIX, she worked at Court TV, CNBC and Fox News Channel.

Taussig, who will oversee all engineering and operations functions at WPIX, joined the station in 2000. Most recently, he was the engineer in charge of the 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

“Along with Rolando Pujol, who leads PIX11′s digital team, I’m confident we are geared for success on all platforms,” WPIX news director Mark Effron said in a statement. “This team, along with the News department, will write the next great chapter of PIX11′s storied news operation.”
