Editor, CNN Digital
A graduate of Emerson College, Deblina Chakraborty worked in magazine publishing for several years before falling down the rabbit hole of digital journalism. Since then, she’s written, edited and programmed content for Discovery Communications, HowStuffWorks.com and CNN Headline News, and hosted the award-winning podcast “Stuff You Missed in History Class.” Deblina helped run HLN’s digital coverage of several high-profile trials, including editing daily live blogs for the Jodi Arias and George Zimmerman trials that were picked up by multiple media outlets. Recently, as a digital director for The E.W. Scripps Company’s local media division, she managed a team that was working to reimagine how local news is covered and presented online. Now, as an Editor for CNN Digital’s Global Programming team, Deblina focuses on alerting and off-platform programming strategies to help curate and distribute content to some of the largest news-seeking audiences in the world.
