Tanya Ballard Brown
Journalist in Washington, DC
I'm a seasoned digital editor with experience brainstorming and implementing digital features; managing digital producers and interns; line editing digital stories; and writing promotional text such as teasers and social media pitches. I excel at collaborating with editors and reporters from other media platforms to create complementary digital content.
When I can, I feed my love for pop culture, arts and entertainment by joining the NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, hosting live streaming segments on Facebook, and writing blog posts and book reviews.
In my free time, I perform at storytelling events, front a band made up of NPR staffers, sing show tunes, dance randomly in the middle of the newsroom, take acting and improv classes, and dream of being a bass player. Or Sarah Vaughan. Whichever comes first.
