She comes to us from our sister station, WPVI in Philadelphia, where she was vice president of programming.
In announcing Welch's appointment, Campbell said: "Caroline Welch's proven commitment to excellence in local TV programming, along with the wide-ranging expertise she's gained working closely with management and staff across-the-board at WPVI-TV, made her the ideal choice for the top post at WTVD-TV. We all congratulate Caroline on this well-deserved promotion and look forward to her continuing success ahead in Raleigh-Durham."
Welch succeeds John Idler who recently was promoted to President and General Manager of ABC-owned WLS-TV in Chicago.
Prior to joining the ABC Owned Television Stations Group, Welch held producing positions at Fox 45 in Baltimore and Simmons/Fortune in Washington, D.C. Before moving into television, she worked as a print reporter on the island of Tonga, in the South Pacific.
We're happy to welcome Caroline to the Triangle and to North Carolina.
