I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be moving to D.C. in June to join Al Jazeera America’s flagship news program in a senior role as a digital producer.
Relentless, fiercely objective journalism has always been paramount to my work, and I see in AJA’s new channel a bold, radical opportunity to raise the bar in cable news: to do it differently and more seriously, with integrity, fairness, respect, transparency and independence.
I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to spend the last three years at FRONTLINE working to shape its digital future: helping grow the series’ digital audience by more than 75 percent, experimenting in interactive storytelling and video, creating new collaborations and digital partnerships, and reporting and producing original digital stories spanning wide-reaching topics ranging from the financial crisis and the influence of money in political campaigns to the civil war in Syria and Al Qaeda’s stronghold in Yemen. I’ve been very fortunate to work with a truly impressive team there and with irreplaceable mentors and bosses. I will miss my colleagues and work there dearly.
But I’m very excited about this new opportunity and hope you’ll follow me on this new journey. Stay tuned for more soon!
