Paramount + Viacom
I started working for Viacom in-house during the 2004 MTV upfronts. Since then I’ve worked for a wide range of their networks, including a bunch that no longer exist. I’ve worked at least six MTV channels, TV Land, Spike/Paramount Channel, Nick and Logo, plus I’ve worked out-of-house on gobs of stuff that went back into the mothership. I’ve worked on a wide range of projects: giant tentpole events like the VMAs and the Movie Awards, work that went on our big billboards in Times Square, tiny/quirky social media posts for fans, entertaining junk food shows like “The Real World” or “Road Rules”, shows like “It Gets Better” that were meaningful and culturally important. Lots of things have changed for the better. We’ve gone from relying on spots that people can’t skip over to social content that people seek out.
