Following Susan Sullivan‘s promotion to NBC News, where she will work in Standards & Practices, WNBC has named Amy Morris Vice President of News for the flagship NBC station.
Morris joins from WPVI, the ABC powerhouse in Philadelphia where she has been Assistant News Director. Morris previously worked in New York as an ep at WABC. She’s also been an ep at WLS in Chicago and KSTP in Minneapolis.
“Amy is a smart and innovative leader,” said Eric Lerner, president and GM of WNBC. “I am thrilled to welcome Amy to our WNBC family and look forward to her leadership in the newsroom,”
“WNBC’s approach to digging and uncovering stories every day represents the very best in journalism,” said Morris. “There are many great opportunities ahead and I can’t wait to get to work.” She starts later this month.
