Today’s featured journalist is Tanya Ballard Brown, an editor with NPR who covers pop culture, social networking, and general entertainment. Brown calls herself “a Southern girl and a wild dreamer who laughs loudly and often.”
A native of Charlotte, N.C., and alumna of N.C. A&T State University, Brown is a former congressional fellow with the American Political Science Association. Her portfolio includes: Awkwardly Awaiting The Zimmerman Trial’s Outcome, Stuff You Might Have Missed In The Paula Deen Brouhaha, and Easy Rawlins Is Alive, Or Is He? and she’d like to be a bass player when she grows up. Or Sarah Vaughan.
Remember: if you also want to be featured here, you should a) set up your own own journalist portfolio and 2) let us know by emailing delia at muckrack dot com.
