David Kleeman, Children's Programming

Strategist, analyst, author and speaker — for a quarter-century, David Kleeman has led the children’s media industry in developing sustainable, kid-friendly solutions.

In May 2013, he broadened his focus, and is now developing a global kids’ and family "think tank" as senior vice president of insights programs and PlayVangelist for PlayCollective, a research, strategy, business planning and creative development company. From 1988 to 2013, Kleeman was president of the American Center for Children and Media, promoting the exchange of ideas, expertise and information as a means for building quality. He has advised companies and organizations ranging from PBS Kids and Baby Einstein to the Geena Davis Institute on Gender and Media and UNICEF. He is advisory board chair to the international children’s TV festival (Prix Jeunesse) and a former senior fellow of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media.

Kleeman travels worldwide seeking best practices in children’s and family media, technology and products; he has given presentations on six continents. He writes extensively for trade and general press, including two book chapters and commentaries for the Huffington Post and Kidscreen.
