Los Angeles, CA - June 13, 2019 - Media Executive & Executive Producer Eric Weinberger has announced the formation of Eric Weinberger Productions and Media Consulting. Weinberger, whose vision for the last 20 years has defined live sports, news, and entertainment will continue to bring the best in production focusing on linear and digital entertainment companies that produce live events, monetize content, and identify new on-air talent to host content across all platforms. Eric Weinberger Productions is focused on helping companies scale and produce premium content.
Over the past 12 months, Eric Weinberger Productions has partnered with sports and entertainment companies to launch new activations. In December of 2018, Weinberger produced the live stream for Rolling Loud Los Angeles, one of the largest hip-hop festivals in the world, and executive produced Livezone, the pre and post festival show for LivexLive Media (NASDAQ: LIVX). Weinberger recruited music journalists and personalities to host the event and worked closely with national sponsors to monetize the event across multiple social networks. Livezone was produced and modeled after the various on-location sports shows Weinberger has produced over the years such as Thursday Night Football and the NFL Draft.
Said Weinberger: "I love working with new and legacy media companies as they find more ways to “eventize” productions and monetize their content. Premium content has never been more in demand and this is a great time for me to use my experience to assist storytellers and creators."
Weinberger was the Executive Producer at the NFL Network until 2015. While at the NFL he was instrumental in creating all live programming for the league-owned channel. He also helped grow events like the NFL Draft, NFL Combine and Super Bowl Week. Before NFL Network Weinberger served as Senior Producer for the Sports and Entertainment program Best Damn Sports Show Period at Fox Sports. Following his years at Fox Sports and the NFL, Weinberger then broadened his experience as President of the Bill Simmons Media Group and Executive Producer for programming on HBO including Any Given Wednesday and the long form documentary Andre The Giant. Weinberger currently is a member of the Board of such community organizations as Hav-A-Sole, a non-profit organization that provides footwear for the homeless, and The California Golden Bears youth hockey organization.
