HARTFORD, CONN: Two TV stations and the newspaper of record in this Northeastern stronghold will soon share digs. Tribune-owned WTIC-TV, WTXX-TV and the Hartford Courant are being combined, the Chicago media conglomerate announced today. The combined operations will be led up by Richard Graziano, senior vice president and general manager of the two television stations. Graziano has also been named publisher of Courant, effective immediately. Steve Carver, the Courant publisher since November 2006, will leave the company following a short transition period, Tribune said.
The TV operations will be moved into the Courant facility, where a new HD studio will be built in the newsroom, some time in late summer. WTIC-TV, the local Fox affiliate, and WTXX-TV, a This TV affiliate, generate a combined weekly total of 33 hours of news. WTIC will add two half-hour segments, one at noon and another at 6 p.m.
