About the Panelists:

Raney Aronson-Rath: As deputy executive producer for PBS’ flagship public affairs documentary series FRONTLINE, Raney Aronson-Rath guides the editorial development and execution of the series, from primetime television broadcasts to multiplatform initiatives. With Executive Producer David Fanning, she oversees all phases of production and runs the daily editorial management of the series, as well as FRONTLINE’s new monthly magazine program. Instrumental in spearheading the magazine launch, Aronson-Rath works to re-imagine long-form documentary while maintaining the excellence in journalism and production for which FRONTLINE is known. Since joining FRONTLINE in 2007, Aronson-Rath has expanded the series’ reach and reporting capabilities. Under her leadership, FRONTLINE has significantly grown its broadcast and digital audiences. Aronson-Rath has also developed and managed more than 20 in-depth, cross-platform journalism partnerships with some of the nation’s premiere news outlets, including ProPublica, American Public Media’s Marketplace, PBS NewsHour, CBC Television and Univision. Committed to exploring innovative approaches to long-form storytelling, Aronson-Rath has helmed a number of experimental, multiplatform projects, including the Polk Award-winningLaw & Disorder, a yearlong investigation into questionable police shootings in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; Post Mortem, an exposé on death investigation in America; Big Money 2012, an examination of campaign finance following the Citizens United Supreme Court case; and, most recently, Concussion Watch, an interactive database tracking concussions in the NFL. Before helping to manage the series, Aronson-Rath produced, directed and wrote several award-winning FRONTLINE films, including News WarThe Last Abortion Clinic and The Jesus Factor. Prior to joining FRONTLINE, she worked on award-winning series at ABC News, The Wall Street Journal and MSNBC. Early in her career, while living in Taipei, she was a newspaper reporter for The China Post. Aronson-Rath has a bachelor’s degree in South Asian studies and history from the University of Wisconsin. She received her master’s from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

Daniel Gawlowski: Danny Gawlowski is a Photo / Video Editor at The Seattle Times. He studied photojournalism at Ball State University and documentary filmmaking at the Seattle Film Institute. He was a part of the team that was awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for coverage of a police slaying and the ensuing manhunt. It was the first time that online coverage was specifically mentioned in a Pulitzer citation. Danny was awarded a 2011 National Edward R. Murrow Award for Video Feature Reporting for work done with photojournalist Erika Schultz documenting homelessness among Seattle-area families and children. The project was also awarded a 2011 Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism for Multimedia Reporting. He was awarded the 2012 Gannett Foundation Award for Innovation in Watchdog Journalism for a data-driven video showing how more than 2,000 people in Washington State fatally overdosed on methadone, a cheap and unpredictable painkiller that the state steered people toward in order to save money. The overall project, led by Michael J. Berens and Ken Armstrong, was also awarded the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting, the APME Public Service Award, the Global Editors Network Data Journalism Award and the 2012 Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting. The project lead to abrupt changes in state policy, ending the practice and ceasing plans for similar policies to be implemented across the country. He was awarded a 2013 National Edward R. Murrow Award for work done with investigative journalist Michael J. Berens showing elephants are slowly dying out in American zoos, with infant-mortality rate almost triple the rate in the wild. He learned most of what he knows working for great picture editors at The Seattle Times, The Bellingham Herald, The Dallas Morning News, The Concord Monitor, The Courier and Press and other great visual newspapers. Danny is a regular faculty member at The Kalish Visual Editing Workshop, the Northwest Video Workshop and the Bellingham Visual Journalism Conference. He is a board member of the Associated Press Photo Managers Association and helped judge the 2011 SND Best of Digital News Design competition. Danny’s photographic work has also appeared in several books. For “The Other Side of Middletown,” Danny produced a body of photographic and multimedia work that documented the African American community of Muncie, Indiana. His photographs illustrate several textbooks, including “Introduction to Anthropology,” “Cultural Anthropology,” and “Amours: Histoires des relations entre les hommes et les femmes.”

Kathy Kieliszewski: I made my first piece of “multimedia” with an 8-track player, a cassette tape, a vinyl record and a bunch of still pictures cut out of teen magazines. It was 1986 and I knew then I wanted to tell stories for a living. Fast forward through 27 years of being a journalism student, a photojournalist, a newbie picture editor and now as the Director of Photography and Video at the Detroit Free Press, I’ve told stories that delighted, angered and motivated people – all without an 8-track player.

Jason Mojica has been contributing to Vice since 2007. Before joining the company full time in 2011, he worked for Al Jazeera English as a producer on the network’s weekly media analysis program,The Listening Post, and as a field producer for Josh Rushing’s series, On War. Since joining Vice he has produced documentaries for the web and for the company’s Emmy-nominated HBO series in more than 30 countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, El Salvador, the Philippines, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Jason was recently named Editor-in-Chief of Vice News. Jason holds a B.A. in Political Communication from George Washington University

Andy Pergam was, until recently, Senior Editor at the Washington Post, overseeing video. In addition to setting long-term strategy and product innovation, he led a large team of journalists focused on daily and long-form video storytelling, with an emphasis on emerging distribution platforms for video. During his tenure, The Post received more than 15 Emmy Awards, including top recognition for Overall Station Excellence, and five Edward R. Murrow Awards, including top recognition for Overall Excellence. Andrew is also a co-founder of Spark Camp, a next-generation convener that brings together journalism, media and technology leaders multiple times a year. He is now advising other media companies as they develop video strategies. Andrew earned a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, where he remains active as Vice Chair of the Board of Alumni, and graduated from Johns Hopkins University.
