To further our mission to not only craft and showcase journalism at Grady, but also talk about the process and quality of reporting itself, each guest curator has highlighted what he or she sees as the five “don’t want to miss” pieces posted to Grady Newsource that month, along with a few sentences of constructive reflection about the journalism.
About This Month’s Guest Curator
Kendall Trammell is a producer on CNN’s mobile news programming team. She executes CNN Digital’s mobile and off-platform efforts across emerging products, such as Apple News, Google AMP stories and audio speakers, as well as its owned and operated properties, including CNN.com and the CNN mobile app.
Before joining CNN a year and a half ago, Trammell was a shareable content specialist at Cox Media Group. There she developed and implemented the cross-platform video distribution strategy for Rare.us and other sites under the Fans 1st Media division, a subset of national digital brands. She also produced, shot and edited enterprise multimedia stories. Trammell is a 2016 graduate of the University of Georgia.
I’m a really big fan of explainers because we sometimes forget that our audiences aren’t always news junkies like us journalists. We provide a public service when we help break down complex topics or, in this case, election amendments. It was engaging, informative and respected the platform’s constraints perfectly. I would love to see more journalism like this.
