I’m fiercely passionate about storytelling — whether it be through writing eye-popping headlines or share-worthy social media copy. At The Baltimore Sun, I do all that and more as the night editor on the metro department’s digital team.
In this role, I edit and produce stories, send newsletters and news alerts, and curate The Sun’s homepage by using real-time analytics to help inform my decisions. In addition to managing our breaking news coverage and main social accounts at nights, I ensure stories, videos and photo galleries are in top shape for morning posting.
So yes, I do a little bit of everything in the newsroom. And yes, it gets a bit hectic at times. But every day is different, fast paced and exciting. As a young editor, I walk into work every day with one overarching goal: to help better serve the community and to think of innovative ways to reach new audiences.
