New York, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2015
Mashable, the leading media company for the digital generation, announced today that it has hired Miriam Kramer as its first Space Reporter, pioneering a new beat for Mashable through a specifically digital-focused lens.
Mashable began its coverage of science a year ago by documenting climate change and environmental issues in the digital age. With a focus on reporting that is visual, immersive and compelling, Mashable serves as a distinct voice on the issues that impact the daily lives of its global audience. In her new role, Kramer will continue to build on this, focusing on the ramifications of the growing private sector space industry, from Elon Musk's SpaceX to lesser-known players in micro-satellites and other emerging technologies.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand from our audience to better understand the constantly evolving world around them, from extreme weather events to the social and economic issues it impacts around the globe,” said Jim Roberts, Chief Content Officer and Executive Editor of Mashable. “It’s important to us to continue to make sense of these complex issues using a mix of storytelling tools that resonate best with our audience. Miriam is an eminent player in science journalism, and we’re excited to have her join the Mashable team.”
Before joining Mashable, Kramer was staff writer at Space.com, reporting on space exploration, rocket launches and crucial scientific discoveries, from 2012 to 2015. Prior to that, she was a contributor at Popular Mechanics, producing web content during the summer of 2012.
Kramer is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, where she studied journalism, and New York University, where she completed the Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program. She joins Mashable in April and can be found on Twitter at @mirikramer.
