Following years of cable and major market live TV news production, Belvedere started in 2007 the award-winning video department at usnews.com, the website of U.S. News & World Report.

Prior to WRC, he started his career in TV production at CNBC, where he returned in the fall of 2011 as a producer on "Street Signs," before joining the digital team.
