Exec named veep, special projects

Roger Goodman has been upped to VP of special projects for ABC Inc.

In addition to new responsibilities related to ABC’s push into interactive television, the 33-year Alphabet web vet will continue working for ABC News while also serving as executive director of special projects for the net. He’ll report to ABC News topper David Westin.

“This promotion reflects the increasing involvement Roger has had in important projects for the ABC Television Network and in the development of critical new technological initiatives in the years to come,” ABC Television Network prexy Pat Fili-Krushel said in a statement announcing Goodman’s new position.

Goodman, who helps establish the overall look of all ABC News sets, is overseeing the creative design of ABC’s new Times Square studio, which will eventually house the web’s “Good Morning America.” He also regularly helms ABC News’ political coverage and specials.

Goodman, who joined ABC in 1965 as a production assistant, worked at ABC Sports for 19 years, directing numerous broadcasts, including “Monday Night Football” and “ABC’s Wide World of Sports.” He served as coordinating director of the web’s 1980, 1984 and 1986 Winter Olympics coverage.
