ABOUT ME (THE BIO)
RebootTheMedia was founded by Diane Reed, a media executive with over twenty years of industry experience. She launched her entertainment career in the TV and Network Feature Films department at Warner Bros. then joined MTV Networks as Sumner Redstone bought parent company Viacom. During her tenure, she had a front row seat to the media revolution as MTVN went from three networks – MTV, VH-1, and Nickelodeon — to upwards of twenty-eight networks that live on multiple media platforms.
While there, Diane was responsible for branding MTV Networks industry-wide and supporting the launch of several new networks. She produced hundreds of celebrity events, established the mtvn.com website, and developed numerous marketing and communications campaigns. She pursued her commitment to make a difference as a member of the MTV Networks Diversity Council, by partnering with the Cable Television Public Affairs Association’s Beacon Awards, and then as marketing director for Landmark Education, and working with The Clinton Global Initiative and CGI America.
Diane helped manage campaigns for bestselling books on transformational business management, including Tribal Leadership and The Three Laws of Performance. For the past several years she has been working for Evolving Wisdom, where she oversaw online marketing and education programs for Neale Donald Walsch, bestselling author of the Conversations with God book series, and Dr. Jean Houston, author, and one of the founders of the human potential movement.
Spreading the power of transformative communications, Diane now offers consulting services through her company, Mercury Forward.
She lives in Chicago with her husband, Dan, and their dog, Jigen.
