“Working together, we will only strengthen our commitment to our viewers and the towns in that region,” WFSB vice president and general manager Klarn DePalma said.  “Both of our staffs have a commitment to providing Norwich and neighboring communities with the best news, weather and sports coverage possible.”

The partnership, which will take effect sometime in March, will have WFSB and Bulletin staffers appearing on each other’s platforms.
