I am Kelly Frank Green, a journalist and writer with more than 16 years experience creating informative, emotional and provocative programming. I’ve been honored and lucky to work for some of the best in the business: CNN, NBC & Fox News. I now work at the CBS affiliate in Atlanta as Senior Managing Editor: Broadcast, Digital & Social.
A few years ago while an Executive Producer at CNN, I became an early adopter of all things social media, mobile and digital. It became a passion almost instantly.
I am taking my vast hands-on experience and deepening it by pursuing a Master’s degree in Mass Communications with a specialization in Social Media at the University of Florida, the only program of its kind in the country. I’m fascinated by this medium that spreads the most powerful tool the human race has in a nanosecond: Words.
I am west coast born, mid-west developed, east coast loving and southern undecided. I believe the world is small but awesome and have journalism to thank for that. Social Media is making the world even smaller by placing the most far-reaching places, struggles and communities in the palms of our hands. I want to be a leader in education, understanding and strategy for this medium.
I am experiencing the wonder of discovery through my two little girls.
I am a diehard Buckeye Football fan (Is there any other kind?) I am an Aspiring Yogi, a willing-to-try-anything Foodie and I think Mexican food is the nectar of the gods. I believe yoga can cure what ails you. I believe macaroni and cheese can make a bad day good. I know nothing compares to the love of a good person and I have one to walk through life with. I believe friends are my touchstones and travel will cleanse your soul.
