Adam Dusenberry
Operations Manager - adusenberry@wctv.org

Adam joined WCTV in August 2016, but began his career in television at just 12 years old when he joined the community media center in his hometown.  Eventually, he found himself producing and directing some of the station's largest and most prominent productions, including the 4th of July Parade and Live Election Night Coverage, which are a few of the shows he has won awards for.  Growing up, his other passion was Scouting.  He found a way to combine it with media production by creating and producing a television series about environmental issues for his Eagle Scout Project.  Adam attended Ithaca College where he received his degree in Communications. He spent a semester in Los Angeles, where he interned on The Howie Mandel Show.  He's also worked at New England Cable News, WinCAM in Winchester and at WCAT in Wakefield.  In 2016, Adam produced the livestream and oversaw the recording of the Alliance for Community Media's annual conference in Boston.

Contact Adam with any questions about WCTV’s equipment, facilities or to get training.  Adam continues his passion to make media in his free time and produced several shows out of his hometown community media center.
