WPIX, the Tribune-owned New York CW affiliate, has announced the promotion of Amy Waldman to news director.
“Amy’s inside knowledge of PIX11 and the NY market, along with her successful trend of explosive audience growth and engagement, make her the perfect fit to lead our news department,” said Rich Graziano, WPIX president and general manager.
Waldman, who was most recently acting news director at the station, replaces Mark Effron, who left last year.
Waldman joined WPIX in 2007 as a senior producer and quickly worked her way up the ranks. Prior to joining WPIX, Waldman was a supervising producer for Nancy Grace: Closing Arguments on Court TV.
