First Look Media team adds Kim Bui

Oct 01, 2014

Kim Bui recently announced her next big move: she'll join the innovative First Look Media as the West Coast producer for an as-yet-unnamed team next month. Previously on the breaking news team at Digital First Media’s Thunderdome, Bui will wrap up a short-term run as digital editor with Marketplace before joining FLM as part of a social reporting team led by Andy Carvin.

"So excited that @kimbui is joining me at First Look. Welcome aboard, Kim!" Carvin announced on Twitter.

In an explanatory post on her job announcement, Bui writes, "When I was trying to decide what to do next, I had a list of things I wanted to accomplish," concluding "After a long search, all of these have been fulfilled. ... I met Andy pre-Arab Spring and have always looked up to his passion for exploration and stories. He is also just a nice guy, who I think will make a great boss, and can teach me a lot about working with communities around the world."

Not one to miss out, of course, the Digital First cat also chimed in to say, "GOOD MOVE GUYS IM BEHIND YOU LITERALLY" and posted this picture. Well played, Digital First Cat.
