FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT | KNOW ME PRODUCTIONS
Nomi Roher, an executive producer, program developer, and Emmy® award winning director, is President of Know Me Productions. For more than fifteen years, Nomi’s energy, vision, and managerial expertise have distinguished her wide-ranging multimedia production work. Best known for her dynamic style, Nomi brings together an experienced team of professionals at the New York-based Know Me Productions (KMP).
A boutique production company and creative services agency, KMP specializes in video content for broadcast and digital. KMP’s newest series, the pop-culture Infomaniacs, launched early 2015 on VH1. Currently in development are two New York-centered reality series slated for future release.
As Director of Production from 2006 to 2009, Nomi headed program development and production at NYC TV, the nation’s fifth largest local television outlet, reaching nearly 20 million people in the New York tri-state area. During her tenure, she executive produced Secrets of New York (airing also on WNYE, WNBC-TV, and PBS stations nationwide), Eat Out New York (airing also on WNBC-TV), NY 360, Gigs, and Blueprint, as well as televised coverage of special events—Central Park Summer Stage, the Gotham Independent Film Awards, and the B & C Magazine Broadcast and Cable Awards.
Targeting Millennials, Nomi created two NYC TV “firsts”: City Scoop, a fast-paced weekly local news show spotlighting community and cultural events, and That’s So New York, an interactive program inviting viewers to choose the show’s host by voting on-line for on-air-talent. Nomi won public recognition for her impactful work on Ready New York, an emergency preparedness campaign by the NYC Office of Emergency Management. In 2008, Nomi received eight nominations and an Emmy® Award in Special Event Coverage; a WEBBY Award for City Scoop; and two TELLY Awards for Gigs, an eclectic series exploring New York City’s live music scene.
Nomi, a native of Toronto, Canada, has lived in New York City since the early 1990’s. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree at Rutgers University, she began her media career working on documentaries for PBS broadcast. During graduate studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, she collaborated on several celebrated short films and independent videos. Continuing to pursue her passion for filmmaking, Nomi is pushing ahead on her documentary film for theatrical release, Strykah: The Rise and Fall of the Shower Posse, examining the cultural and political impacts of the notorious, now defunct, Jamaican drug cartel.
