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.
