Co-founder & Head of Content, Creative & Programming
Having graduated from New York University in Film and Television studies, Ron Isaak began his career as an independent television producer in Israel, starting his own production company with a focus on children’s programmes and prime time TV shows.
In 2003, Ron co-founded BabyTV and, alongside a group of childhood development experts, devised the concept, methodology, format and programming behind the world’s first linear channel dedicated specifically to children aged 4 and under. Produced under Ron’s creative direction, BabyTV now holds the world’s largest library of television series created for this age group, with over 90 productions and an output of 12 additional series per year. Alongside the linear channel content, Ron oversees all creative and production material for BabyTV’s extended services including VOD, learning centre apps, interactive content and more.
Ron has been nominated for numerous awards, including the prestigious Prix Jeunesse, which he won for his children’s programmes.
