Senior Producer, Social Discovery, CNN
Christina Zdanowicz is a Senior Producer at CNN Digital. She manages the hectic evening shift for the Social Discovery Team, the network’s hub for social media newsgathering. Assigning, writing and editing stories, verifying user-generated content and making tough editorial decisions are all part of what she does. Her role involves identifying trending topics and social conversations around CNN’s top news priorities, as well as curating content for a social and digital audience.
The highlight of her day is mentoring interns, whom she recruits, hires and supervises. They’ve gone on to full-time jobs at CNN, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, NPR and The Wall Street Journal. Outside of work, she has been working with teens for over a decade as a volunteer at VOX ATL, a teen-led journalism outlet and non-profit. Before her time at CNN, she worked for the Chicago Tribune, CBS 2 Chicago and COSMOS, an Australian science magazine.
