Caroline Foy Welch Named President-GM of WTVD

Caroline Foy Welch has been appointed president and general manager of WTVD in Raleigh-Durham, effective immediately, the ABC O&O announced today.

Welch has worked at WPVI, the ABC O&O in Philadelphia, since 1992. Most recently, she was the station’s vice president of programming.

“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,” Rebecca Campbell, president of the ABC O&Os, said in a statement.

Welch succeeds John Idler, who left WTVD last month to become president and general manager of WLS, the ABC O&O in Chicago.
