    and coverage; develop actionable strategies from learnings

    meetings and conference calls

    What you will have:

    • 10 years of consumer lifestyle media

      in both traditional media (newspapers, magazines, TV) and online media (including

      bloggers) a must
    • Experience with national television

      guest booking and segment development
    • Client management and account

      leadership experience
