WJAR News Director Out

By Kevin Eck 

Chris Lanni, news director for Providence, R.I. NBC affiliate WJAR, is no longer with the station.

Golocalprov reports station GM Vic Vetters wouldn’t comment “stating that the station does not respond to questions about personnel matters.”

Lanni was promoted to news director of the Sinclair-owned station in September 2010 when it was owned by Media General. He started working at WJAR in 2005 as an ep and worked his way up to assistant news director before being named content brand manager.
