Burns Joins WNBC as VP, News/Content

Mar 31, 2008  •  Post A Comment

WNBC-TV has a new VP of news and content: Vickie Burns, whose star has risen at NBC-owned stations’ news operations in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
She succeeds Dan Foreman, who left WNBC earlier in March.
WNBC, the flagship station in the NBC Local Media Division, has lost ratings ground to WABC-TV in recent years.
“Vickie’s energy, creativity and journalistic skills are the perfect mix to ensure WNBC’s leadership in the New York market,” WNBC President and General Manager Frank Comerford said in announcing Ms. Burns’ hire Monday.
She has been VP of news at NBC-owned WRC-TV in Washington since September 2003. Previously she was with sister station WMAQ-TV in Chicago, which she joined in 1986 as a line producer and worked her way up to being named news director in 2001.


  1. My wife and I have been loyal News 4 viewers for years and we like the new set.One thing puzzles us. For years Chuck sat on the right and Sue sat on the left.Darlene Rodriguez also sat on the left and her coanchor sat on the right. Now their srating positions have changed.What is the reason for this?
