About me

Jacque WilsonI am a cross-platform producer for CNN Digital Video. I manage a fantastic team of video producers and editors in Atlanta, Georgia, and ensure our content is being programmed effectively across all of CNN’s platforms, including mobile and social.

As a multimedia journalist for the site, I also write stories, edit videos, and produce in-depth, interactive projects.

Before I joined the Digital Video team, I was a writer and producer with CNN Health. Health journalism is truly my passion, and I continue to work closely with CNN’s Medical Unit to produce great digital videos about a variety of health topics.

I’ve had a long and varied history with CNN. I introduced live tweeting to CNN.com when I covered the 2009 Oscars in Los Angeles from the red carpet. I’ve written about light-hearted subjects like daily deal sites and America’s obsession with country music. I investigated child prostitution in Georgia, Obamacare’s potential impact on the justice system and mysterious tourist deaths in Asia.

I’ve had the opportunity to interview many interesting people during my time at CNN: Allison Janney, Chris Rock, Simon Cowell, Paul Rudd and Michael Cera to name a few. But the stories I enjoy writing the most are about people like Michelle, a cancer survivor who’s struggling with the long-term side effects of her treatment.

On a personal level, I subscribe to more health magazines than I have room to store, and follow more fitness trends than I like to admit. While you’ll occasionally find me carrying cupcakes into the office to share, I am also the one sprinkling chia seeds into my Greek yogurt in the morning to test their brainpower boost.

Please take the time to check out my resume and examples of my work. I was recently profiled as one of the top 30 people fighting childhood obesity in America.
