Nora Neus is an Emmy-nominated producer, author, and freelance journalist with bylines in CNN, Teen Vogue, VICE News, POLITICO Magazine, The Washington Post, and more. Her multidisciplinary work is focused on some of our world’s most challenging issues.
Since she was a kid, Nora has understood journalism as critical for creating a more just world.
She wrote her first hard-hitting piece on the family computer: “Local boy throws corn at sister.” (Yes, she was the sister.) Her work now spans television news, documentary filmmaking, graphic novels, non-fiction, and podcasts. All of her people-centered storytelling aims to amplify marginalized voices and motivate change.
Nora’s passion for ethical journalism as a critical component of democracy has taken her from local news in Charlottesville, Virginia to six years at CNN including field producing in Ukraine at the start of the 2022 conflict with Russia. Now she’s continuing her work as a freelance journalist, producer, and writer to reach adult and young people through national publications, books, and speaking engagements.
She explores challenging issues through storytelling and a trauma-informed lens because, ultimately, her work is about hope. Hope for a more just world.
