Amy Winter, Executive Vice President and General Manager of UPtv, walks the brand's walk: not only is she committed to "uplifting" its audiences per its tagline, but she practices what she preaches to elevate those around her, as well. That includes any opportunity to "uplift" an aspiring programmer by way of sharing insights around her role in developing such groundbreaking reality series as Our Wedding Story and Expecting. So, MediaVillage and the International Radio and Television Society identified 2019 Fellow, Jorden Ashley Albright (pictured at top, right), currently interning at ABC7NY Eyewitness News, to conduct this interview as part journalism assignment, part informational interview. Albright, a recent University of Tennessee graduate with a degree in journalism and broadcast media, has some things in common with Winter (top left) -- they're both Discovery Networks alums (Albright as an editing intern then contractor, Winter as Executive Vice President and General Manager of TLC some years back); and both share a passion for feel-good programming that entertains. They met for the first time for this conversation.
