Shannon McDonald

Shannon McDonald is NewsWorks' social media strategist, so if you've interacted with NewsWorks on social media, she was likely on the other side of the screen. Shannon is a Northeast Philly native with a journalism degree from Temple University and plenty of experience in online community management. Before arriving at NewsWorks in 2010, Shannon launched NEast Philly, a news website for Northeast Philadelphia. In the time since, she's continued to manage and write for the site, as well as teach journalism classes to high school and college students. When not at WHYY, Shannon likes to explore neighborhoods. Really though, she'd rather be in Wildwood.
