The Philadelphia Inquirer

Deputy Managing Producer & Mobile Editor

April 2019 – now

As the first-ever Deputy Managing Producer & Mobile Editor, my core focus is upholding Inquirer standards and values across in-house news platforms, including inquirer.com and the app.

During breaking news, it’s meant working until the early hours of the morning creating and executing coverage plans and digital presentation.

I get to work on other things I care deeply about, too. I’m helping teach the newsroom to write better headlines online and implementing best digital practices. I also serve on the style and mentorship committees and a workstream setting five-year goals for subscriptions. 

My day-to-day looks something like this.

Upholding Inquirer standards and values through daily dayparting and curation of inquirer.com and through quality control and design consistency across digital platforms

Managing about a dozen digital producers charged with keeping news and sports products fresh, lively, accurate, interesting and useful

Creating push notification strategy based on data and overseeing pushes being sent

Working with audience, product, marketing, and advertising departments on key strategic projects including mobile app development and newsletters

Collaborating with editors, reporters, print coordinators, the audience team and the innovation desk to plan online rollout of special projects, longforms and major event coverage

Identifying opportunities to improve headlines, visuals and other story packaging

Troubleshooting problems with our site and CMS tools and working with systems, product and other departments to ensure timely and satisfactory resolutions
