Washington DC and Baltimore MD are as close as Beverly Hills and Thousand Oaks…roughly 40 miles. But on the east coast, it’s an entirely different TV market. Making the 40-mile switch is ANDREA LAIGN, who will be returning to Balimur (as the natives say) to rejoin family and college friends when she takes the Writer Producer slot at Heart’s NBC affil WBAL in Charm City. Andrea went to college in Maryland and is looking forward to both the bright new parts of Baltimore, which she says hasn’t eliminated the historical old feel to the city by the bay, in this case Chesapeake. She hates saying goodbye to the folks at ABC affil WJLA in DC like her boss CSD STAN MELTON, JR, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Her last day in DC will be Feb 10. Yes, even though it’s only 40 miles, she’ll be moving up I-95 and not commuting. Actually, she’s looking forward to buying a house. Once in Baltimore, she’ll be working under CSD JONATHAN KILLIAN. Well Dunne! Andrea! This is great new for you.
For those of you who are keeping track, this marks the 300th WellDunne blog. And it marks the 4th year I’ve been keeping track of ya’ll’s comings and goings, beginning with Graeme Newell’s Marketing IdeaNet. Now I’m even able to include you in the Fates & Fortunes area of BROADCASTING & CABLE’s online site as well. Thanks for your input and don’t be a stranger!
