Allison Hunter is an Emmy-award winning producer who started her broadcast journalism career right here at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism.
Highlights of Hunter’s professional experience include the creation and supervision of local news broadcasts for several start-ups, as well as work with established television stations including WXIX in Cincinnati, WGN-TV in Chicago and KTLA in Los Angeles. She has also spent time producing independent films and commercials.
It was the idea of mentoring journalism students and young professionals that prompted her transition from the control room to the classroom. Hunter is particularly interested in researching youth-centric media as an agent for social change, the news media’s relationships with community stakeholders and the political economic analysis of news content.
