Who is Andrea Palumbos?

A two-time Emmy Award winner, and a four-time Emmy-nominated creative producer with over fourteen years of experience telling stories via fun, engaging, insightful video, audio and interactive content for adults and children. I spent the early part of my career working in digital web and video production for networks like MTV, TV Land, Nick at Nite, The N and PBS.

In 2008 I joined Sesame Workshop as a creative producer pitching, developing, writing, directing, editing and launching transmedia videos, games and apps with story arches that crossed platforms.

Since then I have lead teams in strategy and programming to develop a cohesive story to promote and drive views for content spanning on-air, digital platforms and social media. I have overseen teams of producers making content for the Sesame Street YouTube channel (helping us reach almost three billion views and over two million subscribers) and the Sesame Street podcasts (tripling our streams in six months). In 2015 I began mentoring producers for Sesame Street's International co-productions to build their digital brands and expand our mobile reach for underserved populations across the globe.

As a life-long performer and comedian, connecting with people and telling stories is my passion. I launched my own podcast called Sunday Salon in January 2016, hosting conversations about life and how to enjoy it more. Find it on iTunes and Soundcloud.
