Shannon Wink


’m an award-winning journalist living and working in my native Philadelphia.

You can currently find me working as the editor of Billy Penn, a mobile news website for Philadelphia; and in the Journalism Department at Temple University, where I teach Multimedia Storytelling to undergrads.

Previously, I ran an online news publication called NEast Philly. Over the course of four years, I worked as a news blogger, then social media strategist, then project manager at NewsWorks.

I’ve worked in print and digital publishing, and have experience in content marketing and audience acquisition.

My job allows me to see and learn about Philadelphia, which, aside from being my hometown, is also my passion. Most of my spare time is spent as a board member of the Fishtown Neighbors Association helping to improve one of Philly’s favorite neighborhoods.
