Desiree Cole


I’m not your average news editor.

I come with a unique blend of strong editorial judgement, a background in graphic design, and have recently become obsessed with how video is transforming the digital landscape for publishers.

Currently, I’m a digital senior editor at American Media Inc. in New York City. There, I help direct content strategy based on daily analytics, make sure our social game is strong, and create a multimedia experience for readers — including the making of original videos.

Right now, my pulse is on all things celebrity, but I’ve also penned columns ranging from lifestyle, business, beauty, health, and local culture since entering the industry in 2012.

Specialities include: WordPress (and other CMS), Photoshop, Google Analytics, Chartbeat, Social Analytics, iMovie, basic HTML, SEO best practices, and working with sources for exclusives.

I’m right over at if you ever want to chat.
