June Cohen

Executive Producer, TED Media
As Executive Producer of TED Media, June Cohen was responsible for bringing the TED Conference online, ultimately growing its audience from 1000 attendees per year to more than 1 million viewers per day. In 2006, she launched TEDTalks, the online video series, followed by TED.com (2007) and the TED Open Translation Project (2009). TEDTalks have now been viewed over 1 billion times worldwide. Cohen also co-produces and co-hosts the TED Conference in California. Previously, she was VP of Content at HotWired.com, the pioneering website from Wired Magazine, which introduced many of the web's now-common conventions, including -- for better or worse -- the ad banner. Before that, in 1991, she developed the world's first networked, multimedia magazine. She holds a BA from Stanford University, where she was Editor-in-Chief of The Stanford Daily.
