Social Media Producer
My job as Social Media Producer is to drag stodgy journalists kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a stodgy journalist in the newsroom to pick on.
I joined The World in September 2012 as the program’s first social media producer. My main job is to build community around our Human Needs (global health and development) and Global Nation (feature reporting on immigrant lives in America) beats.
