WCAU-WWSI Names Nick Evansky Tech VP
NBCU-owned WCAU-WWSI Philadelphia has appointed Nick Evansky vice president of technology and operations. He comes to Philadelphia from WNBC New York, where he was vice president of technology and operations, leading the station’s move into a new state-of-the-art studio at Rockefeller Center and the launch of StormTracker4, an S-Band doppler radar that can measure on-the-ground weather conditions in real time.
“Nick brings the depth and breadth needed to take our digital-first operation to a whole new level in the Comcast Technology Center,” said Ric Harris, WCAU-WWSI president-GM. “He’s a strategic thinker who connects well with teams and drives innovation. We’re thrilled to welcome Nick to our team.”
A veteran technology leader with more than two decades of experience serving some of the largest media companies in the U.S. and around the world, Evansky joined NBCUniversal in 2009 as a consultant working with different business units. In 2012 he became staff and joined NBC’s Advanced Technology & Standards team.
Prior to joining NBCU, Evansky was VP and director of operations for services and technology at The Associated Press. In this role, he was responsible for AP’s technical infrastructure and its support staff worldwide — for all formats. This involved extensive travel, managing more than 100 news bureaus, local staff and vendors around the globe.
A native of London, England, Evansky graduated from Ravensbourne University, School of Television & Broadcasting.
