Lawrence “Nick” Nicholson was named president and general manager of Belo’s KTVK and KASW Phoenix. Since 2006, Nicholson has been president and general manager of WVEC Hampton/Norfolk (VA). Prior to that, he ran KMSB and KTTU in Tucson.

 “Nick brings more than 22 years of leadership to his new assignment in Phoenix,” said Belo executive VP/television operations Peter Diaz. “His recent successes in Hampton/Norfolk and Tucson combined with his strong background in sales and marketing make him a great choice to lead our Phoenix operations.”
