- Senior Project Manager, BBC StoryWorks - BBC Global News
Sammi Vogel is a Senior Project Manager for BBC StoryWorks, the branded content studio within BBC Global News.
Sammi is responsible for executing all digital branded content campaigns from a “post-sales” perspective, as her team works alongside the BBC Digital Ad Sales team for BBC Global News. Sammi manages campaigns across North America, Canada, & South America – with content deals ranging in size from $500K to $3M. Sammi works with a variety of internal teams within BBC (editorial, product, design, etc) to help launch a campaign, where the content created can include dynamic article pages or a custom video series. Sammi also has the opportunity to travel for work, when a campaign features a video shoot component – that she helped organize. Excellent project management is very important to her business, as that is what contributes to clients/brands coming back to the BBC for a renewal campaign in the next fiscal year.
Previously, Sammi was an Integrated Marketing Manager with CBS Interactive, a Project Coordinator within the Marketing Operations department at HBO, and a Production Assistant for Brand Creative at Food Network & Cooking Channel. During her college career at URI, she interned at The People’s Court and Sesame Street, both in the production department.
Sammi earned her degree as a Communication Studies major and a Theatre minor in 2013. During her time at URI, Sammi was the Executive Producer of “Dimensions of Diversity” a student-run television series. She developed segment concepts, worked closely with the director on the creation of each episode, and oversaw every taping that was done in Chafee Hall. She thoroughly enjoyed her years at URI and credits her professors, academic courses and URI’s culture for helping her develop as a professional in the field of television production.
Sammi is thrilled to be a part of the HSCM Executive Advisory Board. The Harrington School gave so much to Sammi to help launch her career in television/media — and she plans to give back to the School by acting as a Young Alum advisor and working with the HSCM students to prepare them for their careers after graduation.
