Bloomberg TV hires executive producer
ABC News producer Courtney Chapman was named executive producer of special events for Bloomberg TV, according to Merrill Knox of TVNewser.
Knox writes, “”At ABC News, Chapman was the coordinating producer of content development for digital media, managing digital coverage of the 2010 midterm election and the royal wedding in the UK. In her new role, she will be responsible for Bloomberg TV coverage of both live and planned major events.
Andrew Morse, Bloomberg’s head of U.S. television, joined the business network from ABC News in June. Earlier this month, Morse also brought on former ABCer Wendy Brundige as the network’s West Coast bureau chief.
“In a statement, Bloomberg TV said the goal of Chapman’s role is ‘to deliver more in-depth special reports to our viewers.’ The network produced several specials this summer and has another, called ‘EU Breakthrough,’ scheduled for 7 p.m.ET tonight.”
