Keren Henderson first learned to tell audio-visual stories as a production assistant for Zoo Diaries in Toronto and as a celebrity wedding videographer and editor in Santa Barbara (two remarkably similar jobs).
Using her master’s degree in mass communication from Louisiana State University, Henderson translated her storytelling skills into a journalism career as a local TV news producer and video editor. She returned to LSU in 2010 to earn a doctoral degree in mass communication.
Henderson’s research interests include the culture of American newsrooms and the relationship between the business and the craft of making news. She is responsible for the annual RTDNA/Newhouse School at Syracuse University newsroom survey alongside her colleague, Bob Papper.
Henderson teaches undergraduate courses in broadcast and digital journalism and graduate courses in communications.
