Robin Radin is an award winning television producer with more than 15 years of experience working in the field and in the studio. She is currently a Producer at The Ricki Lake Show.
Robin began her career in Cincinnati as an assignment editor at the Fox affiliate, and less than a year later moved over to the NBC station in the same city where she was hired as a newscast producer. She spent several years there writing and producing, before heading out west to San Diego in 1997, to be the weekend news manager at ABC affiliate KGTV. But she kept her sights on Los Angeles, and just a year later found herself producing news for NBC -- in the number 2 market in America.
While at KNBC, Robin discovered a love for entertainment news, and helped produce the live pre-show events for the Golden Globes, the Emmys and the Oscars. In 2000, Robin headed over to Fox, where she produced the Fox 11 Morning News for several years. Then – the entertainment bug hit again, and Robin went to work for ACME Communications, a small television group with big dreams of producing a nationally syndicated, three hour live morning show, filled with news, gossip, entertainment and weather. Robin joined as Executive Producer in July of 2002 of The Daily Buzz, and began the exhaustive search for the show’s hosts.
After sifting through thousands of demo reels, Robin held a casting call with her top contenders and put them through two days of intense auditions before she and the ACME team found their four new stars. The show started out airing in 8 cities and by the time Robin decided to head back to Hollywood, the show was airing in more than 150 markets nationwide.
Robin was brought on board at The Insider and Entertainment Tonight, where she spent the next five years interviewing celebrities, covering red carpets and junkets, writing pieces, and producing entire shows. She worked her way up to Senior Supervising Producer, working with hosts and correspondents in the field and on the stage. Then in 2008, she was brought on board at E! News as Executive Producer.
While at E!, Robin coached young writers, producers and correspondents, helping them cultivate their talent . She held weekly seminars on entertainment news writing with her staff, and went out in the field with her reporters to work right alongside them. She met daily with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic to create each day’s show. She flew to New York to find freelance reporters and coached them as well. It was during this time that Robin realized her real passion – and talent – was in the coaching and consulting department.
Aside from her work on The Ricki Lake Show, Robin continues to coach talent on the side, as well as act as an editorial consultant for several entertainment news websites . Whatever time she has left is devoted to her husband and their son.
