A market with three major universities, a handful of impressive colleges, scientists abounding with could-be-life-changing ideas in the Research Triangle, a state capital – all within a short drive to the ocean. Sublimely it’s the Raleigh-Durham market of North Carolina. And it’s the future home for ADAM FRARY who has taken the CSD-Programming position at ABC’s WTVD. He’ll be coming east from Louisville where he’s been Marketing Manager at Raycom’s NBC affil, WAVE, as well as President of the Marketing Advisory Board with Raycom. When he tells you he was raised in the business, Adam means it…his parents in Evansville, Indiana had a production company and he was there all the time from when he turned 4. His good looks (true…even if he blushes) found him in front of the camera anchoring student news reports while also producing commercials. After an internship at CNN, and a degree from Vincennes U, he went to work for Raycom at their stations in Montgomery, AL, Evansville, and the aforementioned L’ville. Dad of three boys, he has a dog named Daisy and is a big fan of Notre Dame football. He’s going to love working with WTVD’s muy-talented producer BRANSON KIMBALL when Adam begins June 23. Well Dunne! Adam.


JEFF PAULUS is making the switch from heading up marketing for the Lima, Ohio stations (WOHL, WLQP and WLIO) and is now producing promos at powerhouse WBNS in Columbus. Excellent and Well Dunne! Jeff.

Some of you might have noticed that the new Well Dunne! Talent and blog website made a premature debut over the weekend. As many of you know, it is not a good idea to allow me to push buttons. Anyway, a new site is about to come around just in time for PROMAX NYC. Speaking of, look for Well Dunne’s HARRY LEGG and PR mogul RAY ECKE as well as the one and only BONNIE BARCLAY who will all be on-hand and contributing to this posting. Smile for pictures and think ‘voice’. Today’s Think is for Ms. Bonnie.

WILL BENSON has a new slot, and he didn’t even have to pack up and move. He’s staying in Louisville and loving it. Will is the newest member of the WAVE 3 creative team, headed up by Marketing Manager ADAM FRARY. Mr. B came over from the Fox affil in Derby Town, WDRB. Working for a Raycom station isn’t a new experience for Will – he spent a few years at their WFIE outlet in Evansville, IN. The Vincennes U grad is also a decorated Army veteran who spent some time in the Middle East, where he served as an Infantryman and has some intense experience repelling from helicopters and leading a machine gun team. Let’s hear a rousing Well Dunne! for Will. 

Well Dunne’s MARIAN MASSARO (so new I have to get her on the site) finally has her power back on. Living just north of NYC, he lost the power thanks to that horrible Sandy and it was 11 days without. Oy! If you have electricity, be thankful.

Talk about hitting the ground running…that was the first week on the job for NBC affil WAVE3’s new Marketing Director ADAM FRARY. Not one but two tornadoes hit the Louisville market area – one on Wednesday then one of Friday. The Friday one was a killer.  Adam told me about watching the Doppler and seeing a bright red circle form…that was the tornado. Focusing on the victims and how to help was Adam’s goal. He’s a good man who hails from Evansville, IN and has worked as Marketing Manager at WFIE there before returning to Louisville. Yes, Adam at one time worked as a promo producer in L’ville as well as down in Montgomery at WSFA. He’s so enthusiastic; he made me feel like I hadn’t lost an hour’s sleep! Will love keeping up with him. Well Dunne! Adam.
