WRC Names Wendy Warren Digital Editorial Mgr.
NBC-owned WRC Washington (DMA 8) has hired Wendy Warren as editorial manager, digital.
Warren will oversee NBCWashington.com as well as the station’s social media and digital platforms. She will work with all departments to ensure that the WRC website “continues to be dominant and relevant,” according to station GM Jackie Bradford.
Her first day will be Sept. 17.
Warren has extensive experience working in a newsroom. In her current position as editor and VP of Philly.com (the website of both the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News), she “developed new Web franchises and verticals; created the social media strategy and established the site as a go-to place for breaking news. In fact, during her three years as editor, the site grew page views by 195% and unique monthly visitors by 87%,” Bradford added.
Before joining Philly.com, Warren worked as the business editor for The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa. She went to James Madison University.
