From NBC Friday:

The NBC Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal today announced that Ric Harris has been named President and General Manager of NBC Connecticut / WVIT, effective immediately. Harris brings more than 25 years of media industry experience to the job, the majority spent in general management and advertising sales leadership roles. “Ric Harris loves the local TV business and is committed to becoming a strong part of the communities in Connecticut we serve. He already knows what a great group of people we have at our station in Hartford, and as Vice President of Sales, has become an important addition to that team,” said Valari Staab, President of the NBC Owned Television Stations, to whom Harris will report. “NBC Connecticut is a great station that keeps proving its value to the viewers it serves – one big story after another. I look forward to seeing it continue to evolve and strengthen under Ric’s leadership.”
“I am honored to be part of the fantastic team at NBC Connecticut and look forward to serving our audience, our community and our marketing partners,” said Harris.

Harris replaces David Doebler, who moved on to another job with NBC.
