National Geographic Television (NGT) has opened offices in New York City and Los Angeles due to a "significant and sustained increase in production," the television and documentary production arm of the National Geographic Society, NGT president Michael Rosenfeld announced Tuesday. Nina Weinstein, formerly of the Dicovery Production Group, has been named vice president, West Coast production, for NGT and will head the Los Angeles office, while Kim Woodard, has worked on award-winning programs for National Geographic Channel, PBS and The History Channel, heads the New York office. "This expansion is a reflection of NGT's dramatic growth - we've doubled our production in less than two years - and will give us access to the great talent in New York and Los Angeles," said Rosenfeld in a statement. "We are looking for producers, writers and editors to help us continue that growth, and with Nina Weinstein and Kim Woodard on board, we will be reaching out to the creative communities in both these cities."
