The Lead: Mariana Heredia on Fenix Journalism

In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Mariana Heredia, a 2013 Grady alumna.

After taking a tour around the journalism industry in Atlanta and New York City, she decided that the industry was missing something. Readers aren’t as invested in supporting journalism anymore due to a rise in distrust in the news media.

Her organization is still finding its footing, but we discuss her challenges and hopes for her new entrepreneurial venture.
