The times of newspapers only containing articles is a thing of the past. We are now at a time when social media, videos, and interactive graphics are all part of the news. But how did this change go about and who played a major role in that change?
I’ll tell you who Ann Derry! She played a huge part in that change. Derry founded and led web video at The New York Times, overseeing its implementation throughout the organization. She helped start The Times video department, which produces news and feature programs for nytimes.com and external platforms.
She developed signature Times web documentaries, series, and programs. She created and executed strategies to market, monetize and distribute video across multiple platforms, and oversaw the doubling of video streams and the quadrupling of video revenue from 2012 to 2013.
She’s won multiple awards such as Overseas Press Club Awards and Emmy awards.
