Brian Balthazar Joins AOL As Executive Producer and Head of Programming For AOL.com

I'm thrilled to announce that Brian Balthazar is joining AOL.com as Executive Producer and Head of Programming. Brian's experience is unparalleled and unique – he has original TV programming expertise as well as a world-class production background. He will play a leading role in the future of AOL.com as we program a loved and engaging destination for our loyal viewers. He is one of the most creative and talented people in the programming industry today, and we're looking forward to Brian officially joining our team in January.

In addition, Brian is a nationally recognized pop culture expert who has spent his entire career managing premiere consumer media brands.

He joins AOL from HGTV where he was Director of Original Programming and Development -- overseeing more than 500 hours of programming for many of the network's most popular titles and some of my personal favorites, like "House Hunters" and "Selling New York/Selling LA."

Prior to HGTV, Brian spent many years at NBC and the Today Show, where he launched the very successful fourth hour of "TODAY" with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

I sat down with Brian recently to get his thoughts on joining the AOL family.
