Adam Bagni Joins WJAR in Providence-New Bedford

Adam Bagni has joined WJAR, the NBC-affiliate in Providence-New Bedford, as a producer. Until March, Bagni was the sports director at WNCF in Montgomery.

In a statement, Bagni said his duties will encompass “covering news, covering sports and appearing on-air here and there.” He will make his on-air debut anchoring sports this weekend.

“The media business, in the last five years, has probably changed as much as it ever has,” Bagni said. “Very few people can be one-dimensional any more, and those who are, are few and far between.  You need to be versatile and wear numerous hats in a newsroom.”

WNCF sports director Adam Bagni is leaving the Montgomery ABC-affiliate.

“It was an extremely difficult decision, one which I did not take lightly, but I feel it’s in my best interest at this point in my life,” Bagni said last Wednesday in an staff email obtained by MTR, a blog covering Montgomery media.

Bagni joined WNCF in 2008 after working for the New England Sports Network (NESN). Last year he won the Judge’s Award for Television Sportscaster of the Year from the Alabama Broadcasters Association.

“I don’t have anything lined up yet, and it’s always scary when you’re not sure what’s next, but I think sometimes you have to leave a situation in order to move forward,” he told TVSpy via email on Tuesday. “I have big aspirations, and I’m willing to work hard to get there, so I’m looking forward to focusing on that full-time.” Read more
