Deblina ChakrabortyBio: 

A graduate of Emerson College, Deblina Chakraborty worked in magazine publishing for several years before falling down the rabbit hole of digital journalism in 2009. Since then, she's written, edited and programmed content for Discovery Communications, and CNN Headline News, and for more than two years, she hosted the award-winning podcast "Stuff You Missed in History Class." In 2013, Deblina helped run HLN's digital coverage of the Jodi Arias and George Zimmerman trials, including editing daily live blogs that were picked up by multiple media outlets. Now, as a digital director for The E.W. Scripps Company at Denver7, she manages a team that's working to reimagine how local news is covered and presented online.
