Prior to her EP position in Digital, Nancy was the Executive Producer of Early Morning News, where she oversaw World News Now, America This Morning, and the news segments for Good Morning America.

Nancy’s career began in local news in Providence, Rhode Island. From there she moved to Boston, then New York, where she was a writer at NBC’s number one flagship O&O, WNBC. She won an Emmy award for the morning show she produced there. She was a Sr. Executive Producer when she left the station in 2004, and moved to ABC for the launch of Good Morning America Weekend.

Nancy studied Journalism at NYU and is thrilled to be back at her alma mater, teaching the same courses she took as an Undergrad.
