Hi! My name is Shelby Fishman and I am a multimedia journalist with experience in producing, video, editing and writing. I received a B.A. in Journalism from Southern Methodist University and a master’s degree in Journalism and Public Affairs from American University.
I have gained experience in professional settings and through student media. I am currently an Assistant Editor at Dow Jones, where I write and edit content for publications including Mansion Global, Barron’s and MarketWatch. Prior to this role, I was an Assistant Commerce Editor at MarketWatch. I copy edited finance, real estate and commerce-related stories. I also produced articles for publication using MarketWatch’s content management system and photoshopped product shots and other images for articles.
As an undergraduate at Southern Methodist University, I worked for The Daily Update, SMU’s daily student-run newscast, for over two years. I gained pre-professional training and knowledge by taking on positions during each show. Positions for the show included writer, anchor, producer, director, technical director, audio engineer, video server, camera operator, floor director and teleprompter. After working my way up through various broadcast roles, I was awarded the position of Junior Executive Producer in August 2020, and the position of Senior Executive Producer in January 2021. As an Executive Producer for SMU-TV, I stacked rundowns, mentored beginner broadcast students, wrote, edited, and produced weekly shows.
During the summer of 2020, I interned for Modern Luxury, the nation’s largest luxury media company. I wrote over 20 articles that were published in many of Modern Luxury’s city magazines including the Atlantan, Jezebel, Hamptons Magazine, Modern Luxury Dallas, Houston Magazine, Vegas Magazine and Modern Luxury Weddings Chicago.
