Media Production Session

Rob Hargreaves, Discovery- Robert Hargreaves is the Director, Global Content Reporting and Analytics with Discovery Communications. Prior to joining Discovery he worked in corporate and digital strategy in London at the BBC and before that at PBS in Washington DC. He’s also worked as a Producer at ABC's Good Morning America and MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews. He earned his B.A. in Communications from Cornell University and M.B.A. from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. He serves as the Board Chair for Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia.

Tommy McFly, radio broadcaster- Tommy McFly was called the “local Ryan Seacrest” and “a prince of DC media” by the Washington Post. He’s a multi-platform voice, anchor and host for daily morning radio and TV programs and media voice for D.C.’s most notable events.

McFly has made a name for himself as a DC media ambassador. Since he arrived in the nation’s capital in 2006, he - in no particular order – was the youngest person to host a morning radio show in Washington; during the Obama Administration became the first person in history to emcee the White House Easter Egg Roll; and created the Best Buddies Prom, which raised more than $1 million in five years. Whether he’s co-hosting “The Tommy + Kelly Show” on Real.Fun.DC. or sharing the stories of the people and communities that make Washington tick on NBC4, his love for his adopted city shines through. His commitment to social responsibility began at age five, when he helped his great grandmother pinch perogies for the local firehouse bazaar, and he continues to use his microphone to encourage others to get involved, give back, and pay it forward. His awards include a 2019 Capital Emmy for his coverage of the Nationals’ World Series, a 2018 EPIC Award for Social Media Content, and the key to the city of Herndon, Virginia.
