My friend Gary Ponticiello, a longtime producer for Good Morning America and E! Entertainment, has joined our team as the consultant to TV Maldives programming. He’ll be here for four weeks. His program didn’t officially start until March 10, but since he arrived a day early he plunged right in to the entertainment segment on the newscast, helping Huzam with a profile of a Maldivian singer who just landed an international recording contract.
More on Gary’s activities and the huge challenge of strengthening the programming department coming up later.
