NEW YORK - February 16, 2011 - Lisa Hsia has been elevated to the new position of Executive Vice President of Bravo Digital Media.

Her innovations include the Infoframe, the first technology to make both on-air programming and commercials interactive, Bravo Talk Bubble, the first real-time viewing party and social TV event, and Bravo Now, the first tablet and smart phone application that allows fans to participate in a live viewing companion experience. She has also implemented @BravoTV a Twitter Tracker and Tweet Instigator that takes social TV into a 24-7 experience and "Watch What Happens: Live," a successful online video show that became an on-air hit last year.

Prior to joining Bravo, Hsia served as Vice President of NBC News since 2001, where she had executive oversight for the "Today" show, "Dateline" and long-form programming during 9/11 and the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. An NBC News veteran of eleven years, she previously worked for ABC News producing "Prime Time Live" from 1989-92.

Murrow awards, a Sigma Delta Chi award, an IRE award and the National Press Club's Freedom of the Press Award.
