EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT Tracie began her career in operations at NYC post production facilities in the 80′s and continued in various management roles until ’95. At that point she transitioned to production and was the Manager of Operations for 10 years at Lifetime Studios, a production facility operated by Lifetime Television housing Lifetime’s own programming as well as third party business. After Lifetime, for two years, she freelanced as a Line Producer. She has been with Al Roker Entertainment since September 2005 and currently, under Al, oversees the company both on the business and editorial side.
DIRECTOR CONTENT MARKETING | DIGITAL STRATEGY Jon has a 25 year career in the music industry leading retail marketing initiatives at Capitol Records, EMI Music, BMG and a number of indie music labels; marketing the emotion that music fans attach to songs and integrating third-party brands to music. As that industry transitioned away from an ownership model, Jon also transitioned, moving further into digital and social media marketing as a way to ignite content appeal for a new generation of media consumption. Not only does Jon add the digital element to the slate of programs and branded content produced by Al Roker Entertainment, he also oversees all the digital and social media content offerings from the company. Jon advises on new technology and platforms that continue to put Al Roker Entertainment at the forefront of content creation and broadcast. Based in Los Angeles, Jon also manages Al Roker’s personal social media profile across numerous channels.
