Melissa Ingram

Ingram was promoted last December and now has oversight of day-to-day operations, brand and creative for the network. She leads a team that will produce more original programming than Aspire has ever had. By the end of 2016, the network will have premiered “Magic in the Making,” “Mommy Uncensored,” “Comic Edge,” “ABFF Independent,” “Butter + Brown,” “The Graduates” and “I ASPiRE Olympic Hopefuls.” Equally, if not more, rewarding is her work with the charity The Links, Incorporated. “It’s an absolute pleasure and joy to serve alongside such amazing women instituting change in our community,” Ingram says.
