Move is a return to Indy for former WRTV general sales manager

Tribune has announced that Paul Rennie has been named VP and GM of the company's Indianapolis-market television stations, Indiana's 4 WTTV and FOX 59 WXIN.

Since 2004, Rennie has served as general sales manager for Tribune's Seattle television stations, KCPQ and KZJO; he previously worked in the Indianapolis market as general sales manager at WRTV 6. 

"Paul brings significant industry experience, including time spent in Indy, and he understands the variety of opportunities and challenges generated by a major-market duopoly," said Tribune's president of Broadcast, Larry Wert. "He is a strategic and innovative thinker whom people trust and enjoy — Paul is the perfect fit for Indy."

"I'm happy to be returning to Indianapolis, which is a great market that offers a lot of opportunity," said Rennie.  "These are solid stations with great staffs and a legacy of serving the community with outstanding local news and programming — and, of course, we have the Colts about to kick-off the regular season with a shot at the Super Bowl — now that's exciting."

Rennie will assume his new duties effective immediately.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Indiana's 4 WTTV can be seen on cable in the northernmost part of the Tri-State.
