Janet Han Vissering

Vissering just keeps topping her prior year’s accomplishments. Premiering Nat Geo Wild’s first-ever digital series “Wild Life With Bertie Gregory” on YouTube and NationalGeographic.com and working on the sweeping doc “Wild Yellowstone” are just two of her recent achievements. Not to mention the network continues exponential growth in its sixth year on the air, with 2015 as its most-watched year ever. As she continues to manage Wild’s development and production teams, look for Vissering to bring even more A-list talent to the network’s lineup and elevate staples such as the annual Big Cat Week and Destination Wild special programs. Some of her favorite programs embracing diversity are “How to Get Away With Murder,” “Empire” and “Modern Family.” “These shows cast across all races, genders and sexuality. It brings the real makeup of the world to television,” she says.
