Public Media Career Talk: Angilee Shah
Friday, November 17, 12 p.m. at 1515 on The Corner
1515 University Ave. in Charlottesville
Shah is an editor, mentor and coach for reporters, news organizations and journalism change-makers around the country. She specializes in building teams, budgets and editorial strategy for people and communities too often left out of media narratives. Shah spent six years as a founding editor of Global Nation, the national radio program The World’s coverage of immigration in the U.S. In one year she brought 50 new contributors to that program. As a reporter and editor, her work has been read and heard around the world, including a book about everyday lives in China and a trio of investigative stories about the end of Sri Lanka’s 30-year civil war.
She spent two years on the board of Charlottesville Tomorrow before joining its leadership team two years ago.
This event is part of WTJU and the UVA Career Center’s monthly series of Public Media Career Talks. Upcoming speakers in March and April include VPM News Director Elliott Robinson, former news editor at Charlottesville Tomorrow, and Radio IQ reporter Sandy Hausman. Here’s more about the series.
