Pauline McGrath has been employed at Fall River Educational Television since the fall of 2003.
She received a BA in Communications from Westfield State College, an AA from Bristol Community College, and is a graduate of B.M.C. Durfee High School.
She began her career in 1987 in modeling. While in college, Pauline held five internships; radio talk show host and producer of “Wellness Workshop” on WALE and WHTB; a news reporter and cameraperson for the local cable station in Fall River with Rene Kochman; a staff member in charge of Public Relations and Marketing for “Models & More” Talent agency in Springfield, MA; a Freelance On-Air Personality and crew member for location shoots with various production companies; and voice over talent for several freelance projects.
One year later, Pauline landed a job at WABU-TV 68 in Boston, formerly known as Home of the Red Sox. While there, she was the right hand person to the General Manager of the station which allowed her to gain experiences in sports contract negotiations, broadcast legal issues and overall station management. In addition, she held roles including On-Air Personality, News Anchor, Actress, Assistant to the President, and Human Resources Manager. It was while here that Pauline realized how much she enjoyed every aspect of the television industry, including television production and the business side of things.
Since then, Pauline has held positions as Human Resources Manager for the Sheraton Hotel Boston; Business Manager for Paul Wagner (an International Comedian and Actor); Director of “The Television Workshop” with Cameo Kids Talent Agency; Actress with Boston Casting Talent Agency working on Hollywood films and local productions; and Producer, Writer & Host for several freelance television projects.
Pauline enjoys working at FRED-TV because her role is always evolving, whether there are new projects on the horizon, new students to teach, or new technologies to learn. And she feels fortunate to be able to instruct so many talented individuals that will someday become professionals in this industry.
