Marianne Schaberg is a television producer and writer living in NYC. She got her start in TV on the illustrious and inexplicably cancelled daytime talkshows, “The Caroline Rhea Show” and “Living it Up! With Ali and Jack.” More recently, Marianne produced for CNBC’s “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch” and CNN Headline News’ “Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell.” Her biggest achievement at “The Big Idea” was using her producing magic to convince Richard Simmons to ride a scooter through the studio, a past-time Richard had not engaged in since his 7th birthday. Now that is talent. On top of all that TV goodness, Marianne’s first book, an amazing adaptation of a Jonas Brother’s TV show is set to be published in December, look out tweens everywhere! Marianne grew up in Providence, Rhode Island and graduated from Colgate University in 2002.
