Raycom exec exits to focus on indie prodco

Mary Carole McDonnell is leaving US station group Raycom to focus on her own indie prodco Bellum Entertainment.

McDonnell created producer and distributor Bellum in 2005 and has run in tandem with her role at Raycom where she is executive VP, programming, overseeing scheduling, acquisitions and budgeting.

She will leave the stations company in September after a fifteen-year stint.

Bellum’s current projects include co0oking and lifestyle shows Flip My Food and Fix It, Finish It.

“With Bellum’s continued success and expansion, I’ve decided to devote my efforts exclusively to our projects,” McDonnell said. “My hope is to continue working with Raycom and other station groups on current and future shows that we produce.”
