Tory joined The World newsroom in September 2012 as the program’s first social media producer, responsible for program’s social properties with a focus on the show’s global health, global development, and Global Nation beats.
Tory has led efforts at WGBH to navigate the quickly-changing world of social media and has pioneered the integration of new social platforms into The World’s daily journalism online. Her previous work as the digital producer for WNYC radio program The Takeaway and for the PBS history series American Experience helped her multimedia, research and editorial skills in collaborative and fast-moving environments.
She has also worked as a location manager for the HBO film “Strangers No More,” which went on to win the 2011 Oscar for Best Documentary Short. 2011 was also the year Tory found out they don’t give out Oscar statues to location managers.
Tory holds a BA in English and Classical Civilization from Colby College and is pursuing her Masters in Journalism at Northeastern University in Boston. For more information about Tory, follow her at @torystarr3.
