McLEAN, Va., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gannett's (NYSE:GCI) Broadcasting Division has named Elliott Wiser president and general manager at WTSP in Tampa- St. Petersburg, FL. He succeeds Ken Tonning, who is retiring after 38 years of service to Gannett.

Wiser has held many leading roles at a number of broadcast properties.

Prior to Bright House, Wiser launched Bay News 9 and led the organization as vice president and general manager.

"Elliott's record of success in multimedia broadcasting and business, plus his deep connections in the Tampa area, will be a huge asset to WTSP," said Lynn Beall, executive vice president of Gannett Broadcasting. "We're confident in his ability to strengthen the WTSP brand and help position it as the leading local news organization in the Tampa market."

"I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to lead WTSP," said Wiser. "With remarkable investigations, unwavering dedication to the community and an award-winning staff, they are tremendous advocates for the people of Tampa and poised to become the go-to destination for local news and information."

Wiser received a Bachelor's degree in Broadcasting from The George Washington University and a Master's degree in Media Management from the University of Missouri. He serves on the board of the Salvador Dali Museum and recently completed his second term as chairman of the President's Associates at Eckerd College.
