Emmy nominated producer, Marta Ravin has been working in the entertainment business for over 15 years both behind and in front of the camera. Her unique background and diverse skill set have shaped her into a strong leader and producer, specializing in comedic television both in the studio and field.
Although Marta is widely known as a producer, she began her career as a stand-up comic. After working the circuit for several years she appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” NBC’s “Late Friday” and was soon tapped to host VH1’s “Rock of Ages.” In those early days Marta also served as a freelance writer for VH1, Comedy Central, and MTV.
In the late 90’s Marta was part of the launch of the Oxygen network as an on-air personality on their daily, live talk show, “Pure Oxygen.” It was during her time at Oxygen when Marta segued from in front of the camera to behind the scenes when she became the Show Producer of
“Pure Oxygen” honing her craft in both the studio and the field.
After Oxygen, Marta returned to her Viacom roots. After a short stint producing countdown shows for VH1, Marta was approached by executives at MTV to join the “Total Request Live,” team as Futures Producer, overseeing special events and stunt weeks. Marta eventually became the Producer of TRL where she oversaw the daily operation of the live show. In November of 2008, Marta sent TRL out with a bang as the producer of “Total Finale Live,” a live, three-hour event celebrating ten years of TRL with celebrity appearances, performances and vintage clips.
Although most of her time at MTV was devoted to TRL, Marta also had the opportunity to produce other projects for the network. In the fall of 2007 she was proud to be one of the producers who brought the Broadway musical, “Legally Blonde” to the MTV audience with a groundbreaking, Emmy nominated special.
This past year, Marta was happy to add to her list of credits, “published author.” She is one of the contributors on “Afterbirth,” (St. Martin's Press) a collection of stories about parenting that was released in May of 2009
