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 2 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.
