Kate Hockmeyer is Executive Vice President, Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment
Hockmeyer was most recently a producer on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and has worked at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center for her entire career. After completing NBC’s venerable page program in 2002, Hockmeyer began working as an executive assistant in Lorne Michaels’ office at “Saturday Night Live” where she first learned the craft of running late-night programming. In 2005 she worked under former NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Zucker, where she broadened her programming exposure to include news, entertainment, sports, theme parks and cable.
Hockmeyer worked with Fallon’s production team since he first launched his late-night franchise in 2009. Climbing from an associate producer of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to a supervising producer of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Hockmeyer’s responsibilities grew in lockstep with the franchise’s acclaim. As producer of “The Tonight Show,” Hockmeyer was responsible for all elements of production.
Hockmeyer won a Producers Guild of America Award in 2015 for Outstanding Producer of Live Entertainment Talk Television. She has also been nominated the last five consecutive years for a Prime Time Emmy Award in the Outstanding Variety Series category.
Hockmeyer resides in New York City with her family.
