Marianne Schwab
Executive Producer
Former Network TV Producer, Marianne Schwab, brings high quality national experience to every project she produces as the Executive Producer at CMP Media Cafe. She has an extensive background in broadcast and corporate television that spans over twenty-five years.

Marianne has produced in 25 countries on four continents and field produced and directed video shoots and live television satellite media tour broadcasts in over twenty states in the U.S. -- from the beaches of Hawaii to the sandy shores of Florida and lots of less exciting locations in between.
No one knows more about the types of stories that producers are looking to book on their show than a former network television producer.  Marianne is the “go to” person to show you how to harness the power of media by crafting an irresistible message using her road-tested storytelling techniques that guarantee media attention.
Based in Los Angeles, she uses her insider expertise to help Fortune 500 companies and the public relations agencies who represent them, create newsworthy story angles producers are eager to book on their programs.  Thousands of interviews promoting a wide range of messages have been booked on local and national TV and radio shows as a result.
At CMP Media Cafe, Marianne also provides comprehensive media training for satellite media tours, radio media tours, and broadcast interview appearances. Her book, The Insider's Guide to Media Training, is an essential manual for all P.R. pros.  She shares her behind-the-scenes secrets to creating the right kind of pitch that captures the attention of broadcast decision makers and also provides her media training expertise so that business influencers can ace their on-camera interviews.
Marianne's producer credits include LIVE with Regis & Kathie Lee, Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, Runaway with the Rich & Famous (where it was her job to design and create five-star luxury vacations for celebrities -- and send a video crew along to capture the "magic"), E! Entertainment Television ON E! Specials, ABC-TVs Home Show, George & Alana, and many more.

Regis Philbin & Marianne Schwab
Reunited on Set of Home & Family

Marianne Schwab was a producer for LIVE with Regis & Kathie from 1989-1990.  When Marianne moved on to Runaway with the Rich & Famous, she produced a travel feature with Regis and his wife, Joy, on the Orient Express.  Last year, while Regis was guest hosting on Hallmark's Home & Family, they were reunited on the set (since Marianne is a friend of the show) just ahead of her book launch for Insider's Guide to Media Training.
Prior to founding CMP Media Cafe, she worked with the pioneers in broadcast video public relations launching the West Coast production unit for Medialink in 1996. While there, she also wrote and produced over 125 narrative and b-roll newsfeed packages, electronic press kits, satellite media tours, public service announcements and corporate videos.
Marianne is a sought after speaker for professional conferences, workshops, and live events. She engages her audiences with her ability to reveal the "wizard behind the curtain"  behind-the-scenes in pitch meetings of national shows to educate public relations professionals on what they need to know to improve their results with decision makers.  She has her finger on the pulse of what's working in media today whether is TV, radio, online, or social media.  Her hot speaking topics include “Mastering Storytelling Techniques to Increase Results,” “The Perfect Pitch for Producers,” and more. Contact CMP Media Café for details on booking her for your conference, workshop, or panel.
On a Personal Note:
Marianne grew up in a small Indiana town, took a bite out of the Big Apple, then settled in La-La Land because she needed more sunshine and "good hair days."  Her guilty pleasures include wine tasting, road trips, cycling, and binge watching spy thrillers and Britcoms because she's a bit of an Anglophile.  She is a closet geek who loves museums, documentaries, and tech talk.  She also is just two cats shy of "crazy cat lady" status and is the proud rescuer of two Norwegian Forest Cats, plus one NFC that rescued her.
