“Good Morning America” Anchor Robin Roberts has launched her own production company called Rock’n Robin Productions.
ABC says that "independent" production company will create original broadcast and digital programming for ABC and other networks, ranging from informational shows and documentaries, to lifestyle reality series and live special events.
Additionally, Rock’n Robin Productions’ website rocknrobin.tv went live today and will feature behind the scenes footage and photos from all of Roberts’ various projects as well as a new blog, N’Courage, where Roberts and her staff will recognize individuals who despite extraordinary odds have the courage to thrive and encourage others to do the same.
“I’m blessed to be able to do even more of what I love to do and now reach an even broader audience with programming that will inspire, inform and entertain people,” said Roberts, who will serve as the company’s President. “I’m very excited to get involved in the business and development side of production, and will spend a lot of time working with the team on the creative.” Roberts also added, “I’m so grateful to my ABC and GMA family for supporting the launch of the company.”
John R. Green has been named the Executive Vice President of Programming and Development to run day to day operations of Rock’n Robin Productions.
You may remember Green who was suspended by ABC for a month back in 2006 after he sent emails that used inflammatory language to slam President Bush and Madeleine Albright.
