Featured journalist: Shira Sky
We'll end this week on a high note by featuring Shira Sky of HuffPost Live at the Huffington Post. Sky got her start as an MSNBC intern, but has since climbed the ranks to Booking Producer for HPL. In response to why she became a journalist, Sky refers to her Columbia J-School entrance essay: "Journalism bridges the gaps that exist in society." As for aspiring journalists, she has these three sage words of advice: "network! network! network!"
Be sure to stop by Sky's Muck Rack portfolio for a look at the many celebrities Sky has booked, including Mindy Kaling, Russell Brand and Sofia Vergara! Also, for any PR folks out there reading this, Sky always prefers to be pitched by email, so keep that in mind.
