Super excited that @Alexandrasking has joined CNN's Social TV team. Welcome Alex!— Eric Weisbrod (@EricWeisbrod) July 5, 2016
Eric Weisbrod, who started off his career as an intern in the same channel is now the Head and Director of Social TV since December 2015 and has been associated with the media house for more than a decade. However, do not think that he became an intern and then a producer to go on and become a director. Eric did all sorts of jobs after being the intern. He worked as a news assistant, Production assistant, and then associate producer to finally come to higher positions such as the digital producer and finally the director of social tv.
Often termed as the person responsible for producing outstanding approach in the traditional and news media, Eric is responsible for driving the digital and social media decisions for the CNN TV associating with the anchors and reporters. There are only a few times you work for a company and get satisfied because of the company as well as your personal growth and seems like Eric is getting both for his net worth and career growth has no bounds. That is some achievement, I’d say.
Recipient of an award of Shorty Awards for using social media in the most amazing way for CNN in 2012 for Election coverage, he has also contributed for the channel in a group by helping for several Emmy and Peabody awards. A graduate of The George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs, his current earning is speculated to be around millions as his salary does have a million dollar mark. Nothing but truth!
Eric Weisbrod's age and affairs are not openly leaked in media, but his photos on Instagram with two sons and wife are super adorable. He does have a very cute family of his own and all of them have made each other's lives very happy. His personal life is very closed and only the ones he has shared are available. However, he does have several properties, after all, he has been the employee of CNN for a long time.
CNN named him as the director of Social tv while he was working as the digital producer for the channel's Washington bureau. If reports in the media are to be believed Eric has been hired especially because of his social media skills and that the channel wanted him to lead the newly revamped social media team that is going to tackle all the social media and digital issues from 2016.
Rightly! they say no job is small or big; it is just the hard work that counts and then success will definitely come your way.
