WTAE-TV has hired Justin Antoniotti as news director, the station's president and general manager said.
Mr. Antoniotti most recently served at the Hearst Television sister station WYFF 4 in Greenville, S.C. He will oversee Channel 4 Action News, WTAE.com and WTAE mobile applications, general manager Michael Hayes said.
He begins the post immediately.
"To now be able to move to WTAE is very special," Mr. Antoniotti said in a statement the station released. "I look forward to working with the talented Channel 4 Action News team and building on the great legacy at WTAE."
Mr. Antoniotti is a second-generation news director. His father, Steve, served as news director and later as general manager in Los Angeles, Detroit, St. Louis and Oklahoma City.
Alex Bongiorno, the station's former news director who was with the station since 2009, left last week. She cited personal and family reasons.
