Working with June Oh, our standalone social visual editor, Reyna will be a close collaborator with standalone teams across The Times, adapting their journalism into formats that work across social platforms. She’ll also be responsible for sharing insights between our teams and incorporating standalone into the work we do on Audience, expanding our work to include supporting their goals and initiatives.
Anyone who knows Reyna and her work will know exactly what a great fit she is for this role. During her four years on the social team, Reyna has proven herself to be one of our sharpest, most knowledgeable and most creative editors. She has an uncanny ability to distill any story into smart and engaging social framing, and has developed social plans for some of our biggest enterprise, including Pulitzer-winning series such as our investigation into U.S. airstrikes in the Middle East and the series on deadly traffic stops by U.S. police. She’s also been at the forefront of our team’s efforts to be more visual off-platform, creating some of our best-performing posts in recent years, a skill we’re excited to see her bring to The Times’s standalone offerings.
Reyna started at The Times as a Dow Jones editing intern in 2010. Since then she has hopscotched around the newsroom, working as a community moderator, copy editor and web producer across Metro, Foreign, National, Culture, Opinion and NYT Now. She’s been a social editor for about four years, during which time she has played a key role in a wide range of coverage including the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests and the Tokyo and Beijing Olympics.
You might recognize Reyna’s work if you contemplated your existence when you read this tweet, or bellowed the lyrics when you read this tweet. (She especially enjoyed creating new queer icons in this tweet.)
Please join me in congratulating Reyna!
