Nina Tassler    

Former Television Executive, Author & Activist

Nina Tassler is a television executive and author. She previously held such positions as president, and also chairman of CBS Entertainment from 2004 to 2015. Tassler was the highest profile Latina in network television and one of the few executives who had the power to green light a series. She oversaw CBS’ prime time, late night and daytime programming, as well as program development for all genres. She has nurtured some of the most popular shows in television, including “The Big Bang Theory,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “ER” and the critically acclaimed “The Good Wife.” She also helped shepherd the global phenomena “CSI” and “NCIS” to the screen. Tassler is the author of “What I Told My Daughter” (Atria Books), a collection of timely and timeless wisdom for the next generation of empowered women. From Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Olympian Mia Hamm, from Oscar winners Whoopi Goldberg and Mary Steenburgen to women’s healthcare pioneer Dr. Susan Love, more than fifty of today’s achievers from all politics, science, business, the arts, sports, and public service offer reflections on the messages they have conveyed—or hope to convey—to their daughters about shaping their lives and bettering their world. Tassler serves on the board for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation and is a member of the board of trustees for Boston University. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Jerry Levine, and two children, Matthew and Alice.
