Executive Producer, TED Media
As Executive Producer of TED Media, June Cohen was responsible for bringing the TED Conference online, and growing its audience from 1000 attendees to 150 million viewers worldwide. In 2006, she launched TEDTalks, the online video series, followed by TED.com (2007), the TED Open Translation Project (2009) and the TED Open TV Project (2010). Cohen also co-produces and co-hosts the TED Conference in California. Previously, she was VP of Content at HotWired.com, the pioneering website from Wired Magazine, which introduced many of the web's now-common conventions, including -- for better or worse -- the ad banner. Before that, in 1991, she developed one of the world's first multimedia magazines. She holds a BA from Stanford University, where she was Editor-in-Chief of The Stanford Daily.
