Maria Murriel

I manage WLRN's multimedia and engagement projects, including work on WLRN.org, all our social media platforms, and community events.

I help reporters produce videos, build infographics, reformat stories for maximum web-friendliness and bug them about tweeting more pretty much every day. I also coordinate our internship program. (Apply!)

The best part of my job is working with the public. I love reaching out to and hearing from people for projects like our Aftermath series, about shootings in Liberty City, and our literary contests like this year's #PostLits in partnership with the Miami Book Fair International.

I'm a cat lover with an eye for Instagoodness. I like stories about ethnicity, migration issues and the arts.

And my quest in journalism is to #engagesuburbia, because I grew up in Kendall and know there is good across 836.
