Butterworth Joins Fox 61


Sharon Butterworth, a graduate of the University of Connecticut, is joining Fox 61 as assistant news director.

She comes to Fox 61 after serving as director of special projects at NBC CT where she oversaw the station’s award winning investigative team. She has a strong news background having held progressively high responsibility roles in Miami, Boston and in Hartford at WFSB.

Speculation about how her selection may change the overall look and focus on Fox 61’s nine hours of news programming has already begun in the Hartford/New Haven market.
