On April 7, Alisha Cowan-Vieira will be the featured guest in St. Francis College (SFC)’s latest Terrier Talk. As the director of talent development at ABC News, Cowan-Vieira recruits and develops on- and off-air talent while creating programs and content that reflect a diverse and inclusive audience. Before transitioning into talent development, she worked as a producer at NBC, “The Dr. Oz Show” and CNN.

Cowan-Vieira got her start in media at Viacom, working with VH1 and MTV in the area of strategic partnerships and public affairs. She holds bachelor’s degrees in political science and sociology from Howard University as well as an M.P.A. from New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Passionate about using media as a mechanism to raise greater social awareness, Cowan-Vieira possesses a spectrum of experience not only in television production but in strategic partnerships, talent development and multicultural strategy. She will speak to SFC students about what it is like to be a high-level executive in network television.

Welcoming leaders from a range of professional fields to speak with students, Terrier Talks aim to inspire students to think broadly about their future by exposing them to the unlimited options they can pursue on the road to professional achievement. Terrier Talks are hosted by the President’s Office at SFC and co-sponsored by the Multicultural Affairs Office.
