Bill Moore, Founder and CEO
Bill Moore is our incredibly talented executive producer, broadcaster and trainer. His career has spanned 45 years and includes: television network executive, executive and senior producer for international news, documentary and information programs, and an educator to international journalists and communication departments. Among his honors are 14 national Emmy Awards, 5 Dupont-Columbia Awards and a Peabody for broadcast excellence and programming.
During his 25 years at ABC News, Mr. Moore traveled to every major capital in the world covering breaking news events and producing top rated broadcast programs. For 11 years he served in Washington as Ted Koppel’s Senior Producer for Nightline where he produced programs that not only included the half-hour daily broadcast, but also live Town Meetings from South Africa and Israel, coverage of the tragedy at Tiananmen Square in China, the fall of the Soviet Union, the release of Nelson Mandela, and political unrest in El Salvador. Mr. Moore was promoted to serve as Vice President of ABC News and Vice President of Broadcast Operations and Engineering — no other individual had ever held two such positions in different Divisions of ABC at the same time.
In 1999, Mr. Moore was recruited to head a new media company by the largest privately owned consulting firm in the world holding multi-year USAID contracts. Its’ mission was to provide broadcast and media expertise to governments, businesses, and international broadcasters in areas of programming, production, and technology. Due to the public awareness needs of the Middle East and Africa regions, Mr. Moore also provided onsite training in the areas of multimedia production, strategic communication strategy, convergent media solutions and media/journalism training. All of Mr. Moore’s executive, production and communication skills became major components in long-term USAID-funded projects in Egypt, Jordan and Senegal. In these countries, he designed and implemented projects utilizing broadcast and new media formats for mass-market public awareness tasks. He was the first American journalist to work inside Egypt TV with an all-Egyptian staff, and later repeated this effort for Jordan Radio and Television. In 2003, Mr. Moore bought out the Chemonics International majority ownership and renamed the company. Soon after, the Moore Media Group (now called Moore Marketing Solutions LLC) won a long-term U.S. Government contract with the United States Broadcasting Board of Governors to provide assistance in the areas of television production and training for journalists working for the Voice of America. Since that time, he has trained scores of foreign and domestic journalists, while still providing assistance to a varied list of international clients. At VOA, he has been acclaimed for helping international broadcasters reach their potential, and create programs that are considered sophisticated and compelling to their audiences — and served as Senior Consultant to the Director, David Jackson.
