Kieran Meadows is a multimedia journalist with knowledge and experience in broadcast TV, radio, digital/web and film. With exceptionally strong audio and video production and post-production skills and reporting/writing ability, he's able to step into almost any role in journalism, whether it's editorial, production or technical. As an experienced teacher/mentor, he values clear communication, active listening and teamwork in any professional setting.
After earning his B.A. in Film Studies and African American Studies from Wesleyan University, he decided to work in documentary film and television, first working for Big Mouth Productions and Arts Engine, and soon after, at Jon Alpert and Keiko Tsuno's Downtown Community TV Center. During his time at Democracy Now! and Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting, he became more interested in news and journalism, a seamless transition from documentary filmmaking. He earned his M.A. in Journalism from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in 2009.
Currently, Kieran works at Forbes Magazine as a member of the video team, where he's shot, produced and edited hundreds of videos—and is currently the Producer & Engineer, Forbes Podcasts—and at Democracy Now!, where he works on the production team of the morning live TV broadcast. He also is a regular contributor to LargeUp.com. He has been privileged to work with and alongside folks of diverse backgrounds and means: from grassroots activists to entrepreneurs, CEO's and billionaires, from celebrities and famous musicians to up and coming artists, from government officials to local folks on the block, Kieran treats everyone with the same kindness and respect.
