Los Angeles, United States - June 13, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

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.

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Aug 23, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Aug 23, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

The Latest: Concerts canceled over Hong Kong airport protest

Aug 23, 2019

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day.

The airport protests are the...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Aug 23, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...

Aug 23, 2019

BEIJING — Li Peng, a former hard-line Chinese premier best known for announcing martial law during the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests that ended with a bloody crackdown by troops, has died. He was 90. China's official Xinhua News Agency said Li died Monday of an unspecified illness. His death was not announced until Tuesday evening.
