Shine America Adds Former NBC Exec Vivi Zigler

Vivi Zigler has been named president of Shine 360° and Digital at Shine America, a production company owned by News Corporation. Zigler departed NBC Universal in July, but before that had been there since 1993.

“Vivi is an innovative and dynamic leader with extraordinary multiplatform experience that makes her the ideal person to lead both our Shine 360° and digital businesses,” Shine America’s CEO, Carl Fennessy, told The Hollywood Reporter. ”She has the vision and expertise to develop our brands and content into true 360-degree experiences and will add a whole new dimension to our executive team.”

“One of the things Shine believes in most is attracting the best talent on — and offscreen, and I think Vivi is a rare breed kind of talent,” added Shine America’s president, Eden Gaha.
