BIOGRAPHY of KIM LYBRAND

Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Kim attended (Anderson College), and graduated with a degree in Business. During her time in college, Kim discovered that she had a passion for media. While attending school, she started writing and performing standup comedy, and soon realized that Public Relations and Marketing would be her forte!

Kim began her media career working as an account for the Boca Raton Newspaper, in Boca Raton, Florida. Although she achieved great success with the national accounts that she handled, she had a desire to take on new challenges. She then began working for a magazine, doing the same type of work. It wasn’t long before she discovered that her true passion was television. An opportunity had presented itself to work for a television production company in Florida .Kim started out working in the Media Department, and it wasn’t long before she became the company’s Media Director. This is what Kim believes she was put on this earth to do – to create fabulous TV Programming, to use her innate PR skills to get all major publications and Television shows and networks to become involved, and to think outside of the box. This makes Kim an extremely creative individual!

Her television experience encompasses work both in front of, and behind, the camera. Her television directing credits include a lifestyle show which aired on E! and style Network, and the Travel Channel Canada, along with a sporting show that aired on ESPN2, and a business show that aired on CNBC and PAX TV. She also participated in the creation of, a new teen-related show, scheduled to air on Spike TV, UPN, and WB.

Her work in television has also included Marketing and PR for television shows, and establishing strategic partnerships to align the shows. Those partnerships are with large publication families, such as the Fairchild Bridal Group, and many of the Primedia Publications, such as Soap Opera Digest, to name a few. To ensure that the productions remained within the budget, Kim also managed the production coordinators, and entire production department. (The shows mentioned above are educational style format programming, with high product placement.) The next aspect of Kim's expertise is the buying of airtime for television shows and commercials. Over the years, she has built relationships with numerous networks in dealing with the purchase of airtime.

I hope you get a chance to work with this woman it has been a complete pleasure and would love to work with again in the future.
