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."
