My name is Althea Manasan and I’m a trending producer at CBC Radio, where I spend my days managing social media feeds and curating our best stories to share on our online spaces.
I live and breathe digital news and have always been fascinated with telling stories on the web using social and multimedia. I’ve interned at the National Post, where I wrote daily blogs, and with CBC News’ community team, where I helped manage the G20 Street Level Blog, a citizen journalism project focusing on the 2010 G20 Summit in Toronto. I’ve also worked as a writer for CBCNews.ca, writing and packaging breaking news stories and features for the web.
On this blog, I share thoughts and updates on the latest in digital storytelling and online journalism, and bring you some of my favourite examples of what publishers are doing on the web and social media.
