NBC Universal has named Susan Tully the new president and general manager of WVIT television.

Tully has been with NBC for almost thirty years and most recently was vice president of news for KXAS in Dallas. She succeeds Ric Harris who recently left channel 30 to manage NBC’s stations in Philadelphia.

“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 of NBC 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.”

During Tully’s tenure at KXAS, she built an award-winning investigative unit, an experienced meteorology team in an intense weather region and a community-based reporting strategy to cover more of the massive North Texas market by hiring video journalists who live and work in key local cities.
