I am a media executive and journalist; a former CEO of two satellite TV channels, three cable stations, a TV production company and a dozen web channels. I created web TV channels for Boot’s, Borders and Waterstones, and I advised the CEOs of Hearst Magazines, the Independent and London Evening Standard on digital content strategies. In my earlier journalistic career, I was a World News Anchor for both CNN International and CNBC Europe. For BBC News, I was a member of the parliamentary lobby, attending daily briefings at 10 Downing Street, reporting politics and producing current affairs documentaries for BBC One and Radio 4. In 2002, I became Founder CEO of the Baby Channel, the world’s first parenting TV network, which led to the creation of a slew of other single genre web channels, such as Beauty Zone, Health Zone and Theatreland TV. Presently, I am on an academic sabbatical, researching for a PhD, while lecturing in media and corporate communication.
