President and Founder
Social News Desk
Kim Wilson spent more than 10 years working in television newsrooms prior to founding Social News Desk. She began her career as an assistant to Dan Rather at CBS News after graduating from the University of Florida. She went on to become Executive Producer of News at WJXT-TV in Jacksonville, FL and has worked as a consultant for newsrooms across the state.
When social media started to become a big deal, Kim had a big idea. What if she could create the social media management tool she never had...but always needed? Something designed specifically for broadcasters? Well, that’s exactly what she did. Using her own newsroom experience as a guide, Kim and her team developed Social News Desk’s unique feature set which gives news organizations the power to enforce best practices, measure results, secure account access and monetize social media. And Kim works closely with all of Social News Desk’s clients to provide strategic social media consultation.
Kim publishes her own social media blog for newsrooms and is a contributor to several other popular social media blogs including LostRemote.com. She has also been published at Mashable.com, Journalistics.com and others. Kim has served as a member of the University of Florida’s Advisory Council to the College of Journalism since 2004 and regularly teaches in the University’s Telecommunications Department as an Adjunct Lecturer.
