Emily Hecht

Television Production Spotlight: Emily Hecht

Year graduated from CSUN: 2012

Current company: ViacomCBS

Position title: Vice President, Creative

Job responsibilities:
I oversee all creative development, production and strategy for the digital brand AwesomenessTV under the ViacomCBS umbrella. My day to day responsibilities are developing new series and shows for a Gen Z media company and managing a team of creative producers.

Path into the Industry:
While I was a student at CSUN, I started an internship at a production company. The production company started a new digital media company and I stayed on through graduation as an assistant. While I was assisting, I was creating my own content to put in front of my bosses and they allowed me to start producing content for our audience. Networking and attitude is key!

Words of wisdom:
Don’t be embarrassed to share your creative opinions! People are asking your opinion because they want your answer so speak up. Always have a good attitude and be the person who is happy to do any job.
