Marie Claire Puts Female Producers in the Spotlight

In the new Marie Claire, five of TV news’ top female producers get profiled. From NBC News, “Meet the Press” EP Betsy Fischer and “NBC nightly News” senior producer Subrata De get featured. From ABC News, “Good Morning America” senior editorial producer Santina Leuci is profiled, along with CBS “48 Hours Mystery” field producer Kristin Whiting and CNN “Piers Morgan Tonight” senior broadcast producer Katie Nelson Thomson.

The article has interesting anecdotes from each of the women, including an interesting backstory on Whiting’s part. Before joining CBS, Whiting worked in Baghdad, where she helped set up Iraq’s new public TV network following the fall of Saddam Hussein. That is where her featured picture (above) was taken.

Piers Morgan Hires Away Barbara Walters’ Booker

Katie Nelson Thomson has left ABC News and joins CNN as senior broadcast producer of “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

Thomson spent 15 years at ABC News, working primarily with Barbara Walters. She’s produced interviews for “20/20″ and for the Barbara Walters specials, including Walters’s 1999 interview with Monica Lewinsky — watched by 70 million viewers, the highest-rated news event broadcast by a single network.

Says Jonathan Wald, EP of “Piers Morgan Tonight”: “(Katie) brings unmatched experience and leadership in the booking and producing of big-name interviews and she will be instrumental in helping lead a talented team of bookers and producers.”
