Allison Girvin, a seasoned media executive and award-winning journalist, has been named CEO of Shareblue Media, the number one digital platform for progressive news. Girvin begins her new role this July.
Girvin joins Shareblue Media from NBCUniversal, where she launched the Business, Technology and Media Unit for NBC News and MSNBC, producing content for all broadcast, cable, digital, social media and OTT platforms in the NBC News portfolio.
Shareblue Media reaches millions of people across platforms each month. It has more than twice the interaction rate of any other progressive news site, and its net engagement rivals cable television channels. With industry veteran Girvin at the helm, Shareblue Media is positioned to be the most impactful media site for progressive news heading into the 2020 election.
Girvin began her career as a producer working for local TV affiliates, and quickly jumped to New York and network television. She spent a decade at ABC News where she held several roles including head writer for "Good Morning America" under Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts. She left ABC News to launch HuffPost Live, the groundbreaking live streaming video network at the Huffington Post. While at HPL, her team interviewed 25,000 people in 100 countries and garnered 1 billion video views. Girvin went on to lead daytime programming at Bloomberg Television before moving on to NBCUniversal.
A prolific producer, Girvin has covered everything from politics to Wall Street to Big Tech. Her work has been honored with many awards, including an Emmy award for her coverage of the 2008 Presidential Election and an Edward R Murrow award for her coverage of the death of Osama Bin Laden.
Girvin is also a frequent speaker and author on organizational leadership, and is at work on her first book.
Girvin graduated from the University of Missouri Journalism school with a bachelor's degree in broadcast news, and from Columbia University with a master's degree in long form magazine writing. She is originally from San Diego, California.
"With a long and distinguished career in journalism, Allison is the ideal leader to bring our vision of Shareblue to fruition," said David Brock, chairman of Shareblue. "We expect great things."
