Hartford NBC Station Gets New GM

By Kevin Eck 

Susan Tully has been named gm of WVIT, the Hartford NBC-owned station.

Tully had been news director at KXAS for 14 years. She replaces Ric Harris who moved to the Philadelphia NBC-owned station WCAU. She’s worked for NBC-owned stations for most of her 30-year career in local TV.

“Susan has led the KXAS newsroom through countless news cycles, including deadly tornado outbreaks, the Dallas Ebola crisis and the murder and trial of the American Sniper, with professionalism, tenacity and, above all, a strong commitment to the viewer,” said Valari Staab, president NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. “I know she’ll be a great General Manager and I am excited to see how she uses her strong talents and abilities to advance NBC Connecticut even further.”
