From creating the most well known Teen Awards franchise in history (Teen Choice Awards) to producing the Kid’s Choice Awards to conceiving and producing the highest rated special in the history of FOX Television, (The Rock & Roll Figure Skating Championships) Michael Burg has been on the cutting-edge of content creation aimed at young audiences across all broadcast platforms.
In addition to producing hundreds of hours of network and cable entertainment and sports programs, Mike has designed and implemented marketing platforms and campaigns for dozens of Fortune 500 companies in the US and Worldwide.
Mike's portfolio does not end there. His companies have had a strong focus in national arena Tours, producing Olympic gymnastics and skating extravaganzas for the past 15 years including the highest grossing arena sports Tour ever, the 1996 Olympic Tour of Gymnastics Champions. He also created and produced a multi-act music show called Summer Music Mania, featuring “up and coming” music acts and hit makers.

Whether it’s tying in famed Vampire Robert Pattinson to a “blood cancer” campaign tied to the Teen Choice Awards, or creating and producing a teen music phenonmenon to benefit the City of Hope called, Hope Rocks, Mike’s efforts have led the way in creative integration of entertainment based cause marketing. legacy of entertaining education, so, of course, he was a natural for the board.
