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.

A Night of Nightly

dnc_8-24.gifTVNewser had a front row seat for tonight’s broadcast of the NBC Nightly News at 6:30pmET. Helmed by senior producer Subrata De, with new Washington bureau chief Mark Whitaker looking on, about a dozen employees put together the show in a small skybox in the Pepsi Center.

The first block ended just as Sen. Hillary Clinton was being led to the microphone. Because of the breaking news, Williams followed with an updated Nightly at 7:00pmET. Chuck Todd and Ann Curry were in and out of the makeshift greenroom as the broadcast progressed.

“It’s been a full day,” Williams said, who interviewed Michelle Obama earlier today. And the night was really just beginning.
