“I’ve lived in New Jersey for over 30 years, raised my children here, and have witnessed all the Garden State has to offer, as well as the challenges it faces. I’m proud to be given this opportunity to lead WWOR-TV during a particularly exciting and unique time in our state’s history,” Doctor said in a statement. “I look forward to enhancing our presence in New Jersey and continuing our commitment to covering the issues that are relevant to residents of this community.”
