Meet the iMedia staff

Western iMedia is an entrepreneurial editorial startup operated from within Western Kentucky University‘s School of Journalism & Broadcasting under the umbrella of the school’s iMedia capstone course — SJB 495, Collaborative Journalism.

Each year, Western iMedia recruits a small, elite team of senior scholars from across all of the school’s areas of expertise to take on news projects with a decidedly multiplatform, technologically innovative approach. We attract the best people available in writing, design, web, layout, photo, video, social media, audience generation, data visualization, mobile app creation, interactive gaming and a host of other content formats both traditional and non-traditional. We seek people willing to not only bring their own skills to the party but to also work in collaboration with fellow specialists, to not just tell stories but to create the environments in which people engage those stories across multiple media and devices. It is not just about you doing your thing but you integrating with everyone else’s things to the best success of the story.

iMedia staff members have gone on to work for media organizations around the world.
