Yancosek tops WNYW news

NEW YORK — Gail Yancosek has been appointed to the newly created position of vice president of news at Fox’s flagship station WNYW in New York.

Yancosek, who is currently a VP of the station and executive producer of its morning show, “Good Day New York,” will oversee all of WNYW’s news operations. The station’s current news director, Marie Hickey, has resigned her position, citing a desire to spend more time with her family. Hickey will continue to serve as a news consultant.

Yancosek, who joined WNYW in 1990 as coordinating producer for “GDNY,” will name an executive producer for that show as well as a news director for the 10 p.m. news program.
