Social Media Producer/Journalist
Point Taken, a new late night debate show from PBS, was designed to be part TV show and part social conversation. My role heavily influences the editorial content on the show by connecting our social media audience to the conversation happening on the broadcast. Each week we announced a new topic that Americans are already talking about (gender rights, college tuition costs, transparent salaries, etc.) and I find where that conversation is happening on social. After engaging with the experts on this week's topic, I created a social program of sorts, which includes everything from Facebook Live to Twitter Chats to social polling.
