ProPublica announced on Tuesday that it has hired two social video producers. Working with the audience team, Jose Sepulveda and Carissa Quiambao will focus on translating ProPublica’s long-form journalism into short-form, video-first content for TikTok, Instagram and YouTube.
Sepulveda brings seven years of experience with developing, growing and executing social video strategies at NBC/Telemundo Miami, CNBC Digital, and the Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald. He crafted the popular series “Crypto Decoded” in both English and Spanish for NBC/Telemundo Miami, and his video project “Soy Trans: El Camino a un Nuevo Despertar” was a 2021 GLAAD Media Award winner during his tenure at El Nuevo Herald. Sepulveda’s first day was Jan. 8, 2024.
