Accomplished television producer Charles Latibeaudiere has helped redefine entertainment news coverage on TV and the Internet.

Latibeaudiere started his career in local news as a production assistant for KTVK, an affiliate of ABC News in Phoenix, AZ.

In the position, Latibeaudiere oversaw the daily production of upwards of 2,500 episodes.
In 2007, the producer went to work with Jim Paratore and Harvey Levin to create a version of their hit website TMZ.com for television.
Their collaboration was a never-before-seen feat in entertainment as they turned the number one ranked website into a number one ranked television show.
As Co-Executive Producer, Latibeaudiere also appears on the television show. He is one of the irreverent voices seen in the TMZ newsroom nightly.
Latibeaudiere was honored by his hometown with a spot on the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2011, just two blocks from Yankee Stadium.

More About Charles Latibeaudiere - Early Life
TMZ executive producer Charles Latibeaudiere was born on September 12, 1969, in Bronx, New York City.
Much of the executive producer's family is from Jamaica, and he has credited his famous locs to his heritage.
Latibeaudiere is proud of his Caribbean descent and talks about it on his Instagram page.
He is also proud of his African-American heritage, and since the rise of the BLM movement, Latibeaudiere has been quick to talk about the various injustices his people face as much as he can.
Latibeaudiere's online activism starkly contrasts the controversies that TMZ has been facing for its less than politically correct actions. However, the executive producer has not mentioned anything related to the controversy, so it is hard to gather where he stands on the matter.
Latibeaudiere's parents divorced when he was ten years old, and it seems like he will follow suit as he has been posting pictures of and traveling with a new woman and not his wife.
