Zuri’s Posts & Activity

Summary

I work as an editor for the Boston Herald where I have a number of duties, including managing social media, editing video and contributing to our radio station. I am a veteran of digital newsrooms prior to my time at the Herald, operating as an editor, writer and video producer with experience at large and small media outlets, including broadcast television. I have created and overseen online content strategies with an emphasis on competitive social media use and analytics. My experience as a writer and editor has been diverse, handling politics, sports, crime and the arts as well. My experience as a digital editor has required me to be well versed in video editing production, a wide range of analytics and social media management tools as well as best practices for digital outlets. So, basically, I'm all over the place.
