ABOUT

Hello! I’m the senior video producer for series and special projects at ABC News Digital where I lead a team of producers creating original documentary-style content. We use data, personal stories and expert voices to bring context and humanity to the news cycle. My team produces a variety of projects for mobile, streaming and desktop platforms including data and graphics-driven explainers, character-centered limited series and tracking videos breaking down pivotal moments in the news.

Previously I spent four years at National Geographic as a producer/editor creating short-form documentaries for several National Geographic platforms. My work has been recognized by the National Magazine Awards, the White House News Photographers Association and the Society for News Design.

In addition to ABC and National Geographic, I’ve also produced videos for CNN.com, Special Olympics International, Education Week, Women’s World Banking, The Dodo and branded content for CNN Courageous. I love telling stories about conservation, underrepresented communities, animals, travel and science, but am always ready to try something new.

I’d love to hear from you! Send me a noteĀ at shannontsanders@gmail.com.
