OUR TEAM

MIRIAM WEINTRAUB

Miriam is a journalist and award-winning producer who has spent the last 25 years producing quality programs for network television, cable and online  news outlets. She spent more than a dozen years as a producer on CBS’s acclaimed 60 Minutes where she was known for her people stories—compelling segments about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  Over the last few years, she has produced all kinds of content—long form, short form, digital content and promotional pieces for non-profits and NGO’s. Most recently, she co-produced the feature-length HBO documentary, “Life According to Sam,” which won a Peabody Award, a Christopher Award and a Primetime Emmy, and was nominated for the Producers Guild of America Award for Best Documentary Motion Picture.

JENNIFER OKO

Over the course of her career, Jen has worked for each of the network news divisions, domestically and abroad, producing everything from breaking news and celebrity profiles to longform documentaries and investigative reports. Her creativity has been put to use for numerous multimedia and online ventures, including launching the parenting site mommycast.com and spearheading multimedia for a special World Bank initiative. Jen is also the author of three well-reviewed books: Lying Together: My Russian Affair (a memoir—think Bridget Jones meets Dostoevsky), Gloss (a comic novel about the trenches of morning television), and Head Case (a comic novel about trafficking psychopharmaceuticals, which she swears is absolutely not autobiographical in any way).

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
