Featured journalist: Jill Martin of CNN

Aug 11, 2014

Today we are delighted to profile Jill Martin, assignment editor with CNN Sports. "I love my job," Martin writes.  Previously an assignment editor/producer for CNN Newsource Live and as a satellite operator for CNN Newsbeam and CNN Satellites, Martin came to the network after working in newspapers: the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times) among them. "Anytime I can write for CNN.com, it takes me back to my sportswriting days, which I still love," Martin writes. When asked about the story that made her most proud, she replies, "That's like trying to ask me who my favorite child or person is. But Tony Gwynn's death touched so many people. I'll go with that one." Excellent choice, as that particular piece of Martin's earned 15,788 shares. Check out more of Jill Martin's work in her Muck Rack portfolio!
