Online News Association welcomes Content Producer

By on May 5, 2011

Latoya Peterson joins ONA as our part-time Content Producer, just in time to help us with the redesign of journalists.org.

As a digital media consultant, Latoya has worked with NPR and Wikipedia to improve the user experience and provide an understanding of blogging voice and creating connections to help humanize larger brands on the web. She works on projects related to race, pop culture, and video games, and recently spoke for the third time at SXSW Interactive 2011 on issues of technology and social justice. She is a Poynter Institute Sensemaking Fellow, and one of the inaugural Public Media Corps fellows.

A self-declared certified media junkie, she regularly speaks on topics of race, gender and social media at conferences like Women, Action and the Media. She also edits the blog Racialicious.com, contributed to Jezebel.com and has written for Vibe, The American Prospect, The Atlantic Blog, Clutch Magazine, the Women’s Review of Books, Slate’s Double X, The Poynter Institute, The Root.com and The Guardian.

You can reach Latoya with your suggestions and comments at lpeterson@journalists.org.
