I'M WILSON, AND I MAKE CREATIVE THINGS.
NOT VERY USUAL.
I'm Wilson G. Tang, and I'm a creative, digital and media professional with extensive experience designing and producing innovative content and experiential marketing solutions for major media, technology and Fortune 100 brands. I have worked on brands including Google, Yahoo!, USA Today, CBS, Square, Miller Coors, Chipotle, BP, Exxon Mobil, Bank of America and more.
In addition, I've had a distinguished career as on-air television and radio host/producer/writer for major CBS News national broadcasts and online at CNET TV, where I covered technology news extensively.
My passion is and always has been, though, storytelling, whether that is on screen through video and film or online through a blog or article or through creating real life experiences. It's about stories. They make us and define us.
At TBA Global, I am the Director of Creative Content, where I've run the ToBeAnnounced experiential studio. In that capacity, I work to create digital apps and content that extend the event experience.
In addition, I've designed and managed the creation of several websites and app experiences, including the website of weekend radio's number 1 host, Kim Komando.
Finally, I have creative directed press events for brands like Google, ExxonMobil, BP and Chipotle and built websites, directed videos and commercials and developed apps to compliment them.
In short, I build websites for Google.
With Apple ditching Google Maps as their premiere provider of mapping technology, Google wanted to show how advanced and how far they had come with their mapping technology. I managed the creative direction of this extremely important press event.
The relationship between digital agencies and Google is extremely important, as brands engage with more and more integrated digital marketing. I creative directed and will manage the execution of this bi-coastal partner event.
Google generally does not engage with typical conference booths. However, as more and more businesses move their IT infrastructure to the cloud, Google wanted a pressence to show that you can "Go Google" anywhere.
At an event with high profile guests, I created the "Virtual Vintners" app that creatively replaced the sommelier with a virtual characters, who's over-the-top performance broke the ice and got the guests to talk to one another.
Designed and developed new website for weekend radio's number 1 host, Kim Komando. Based on Drupal, the new website was a massive undertaking, involving the transfer and management of dozens of content types including videos, blogs and e-commerce.
For three days, Chipotle flew in two thousand managers for a training and strategy conference. To help facilitate the goals, we created an expo and mesmerizing general session, as well as a Web app that easily allowed attendees to keep up with the agenda.
At CBS, I became a CBS News correspondent on the most high profile of news events in the technology world. With Steve Jobs passing, I hosted and produced three segments that evening and morning, where I discussed the legacy of this technology and cultural lumière on the highly regarded CBS Early Show.
Since then, I've made several appearances on the CBS Early Show's Trend Benders segment as CNET's technology correspondent, and hosted segments for the CBS Morning News.
It's been an honor and a privilege to be part of such an important news and media legacy, and one that I will always carry with me. In addition to CBS News, I have made guest appearances on MSNBC, Reuters and Fox News.
Erica Hill and Chris Wragge talk to CNET's Wilson Tang, Billboard's Bill Werde and Fortune's Leigh Gallagher about Steve Jobs' unique influence in the world of technology, music and business.
Steve Jobs created, directed or inspired nearly all of the life-changing products that Apple produced. Wilson Tang of CNET reports on how Jobs impacted popular culture and the way people deal with technology.
Russ Mitchell speaks with CNet host Wilson Tang about who could potentially fill Steve Jobs' shoes.
Wilson Tang, Host of CNET's "Loaded" and "404," takes a look at the former Apple CEO and what he contributed to the world of technology.
2011 was an exciting year for YouTube and Twitter, with major hits and even crashes. Rebecca Jarvis speaks with CNET.com host Wilson Tang about the huge trends of 2011.
CNET Host Wilson Tang tells Russ Mitchell what's trending on the Web. Among the most viewed videos online: A purported FedEx worker throwing a computer monitor over a fence, a new Angry Bird holiday game, and a kid getting his teeth pulled out.
I was a producer, writer, director and host at CBS Interactive's CNET TV. During that time, I co-hosted The 404 Show, a daily technology news and culture program that was available as a podcast and segments aired on CBS News Radio in 8 of the top 10 markets, Yahoo! Music, CBS Audience Network and AOL Music. I've had the privilege and memory of interviewing celebrities like Eliza Dushku and Wayne Brady and have had exclusive access to events like the premeire of J.J. Abrams's new Star Trek.
In addition to The 404, I hosted CNET's daily news program Loaded, where I covered in-depth industry and device announcements and reviews.
Finally, at CNET, I also worked to help improve the product experience with enhancements to CNET TV and introducing new cinematography and program experiences.
The 404 Sizzle Reel
The 404 is a daily podcast, Monday through Friday, on CNET.com. We talk tech, movies, music, videogames and more.
CNET at CES 2012 Sizzle Reel
As the premiere technology news source, it fell to me to create a stunning sizzle reel of our amazing news coverage at the technology industry's premiere event.
The 404 Interview Eliza Dushku
While at CES 2012, The 404 had the chance to interivew the beautiful and closet-geek, Eliza Dushku. Guys, she is even more beautiful in person!
The 404 Interviews Wayne Brady
Although he kept us waiting for a few minutes, it was well worth it. Wayne Brady, hands down, is one of the funniest people I've ever had the chane to interview.
Premiere of J.J. Abram's Rebooted Star Trek
At the New York premiere of J.J. Abram's newly rebooted Star Trek, I interviewed fans from across the generations, eager to see what J.J.'s new take on Trek would be.
After the depature of Natali Del Conte from CNET TV, it feel to me to host the daily technolgy news program called Loaded.
Dropping a Bowling Ball on my iPad
I wasn't all about news. With The 404 guys, we reviewed a iPad case that claimed to protect tablets against almost any type of impact, except it was with my iPad.
App Review: Epicurious
As part of a revamped App Review segment, this video was an attempt to show how CNET TV could showcase the growing important category of apps.
App Review: Batman Arkham Asylum
Constantly innovating, I updated the App Review segments on CNET TV to use new motion graphics and video capture, to create engaging video content.
Today on CNET
On CNETTV.com everyday, there is a video called "Today on CNET." Occasionally, it feel to The 404 guys to produce a TOC, and with this one, we decided to have a little fun. :-)
Thanks for visiting!
