Gretchen Beidl


Gretchen spent her career in the television industry including Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Sundance Channel. Previously, she held positions at Oxygen Media, Comedy Central and AMC/Romance Classic (which became WE).

Gretchen began her work with kids in care as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) in 2011. She then became a mentor to a teenager who eventually came to live with her and her husband, Michael. They now have two remarkable young women who have joined their family from foster care along with Michael’s two children who are immensely supportive.

“We are parents today because of the support we received from You Gotta Believe. Every child deserves a family and I’m proud to be part of such a dedicated group who are determined to make this happen.”

Gretchen is a graduate of New York University, a Betsy Magness fellow and was named one of the “50 People to Watch” by Cable World magazine. She has been a board member of the NYC Chapter of WICT (Women in Cable & Telecommunications), VIP Community Services and advisor to Nomi Network.
