He starts Jan. 2 and reports to Dennis Bianchi, vice president and general manager.
"Jim's impressive track record of success at WWOR and WNYW speaks for itself," said Bianchi. "I'm confident that his leadership, solid local news instincts and inventive style will continue Fox 29's growth and expand the station's presence in the market."
Driscoll succeeds Steve Schwaid, who departed in July to be vice president of digital strategy at the consulting firm CJ&N.
Earlier in his career, Driscoll was assistant news director at Fox's WNYW New York.
"This is an incredible opportunity for me to join a powerhouse like Fox 29, with such a loyal viewer following," said Driscoll. "I'm looking forward to helping build upon their success. It was an honor to lead the WWOR news team for so many years. I leave behind a great group of people at My 9, who have made me proud, as together we served the viewers of New Jersey."
