My name is Carla Murphy and I’m a journalist. As of late 2012, I produce WNYC Brian Lehrer’s weekly TV program on CUNY-TV and I’m a contributing editor at The Investigative Fund, which supports social justice journalism as part of The Nation Institute.
I grew up in Barbados in the West Indies and New York City. I have a strong interest in criminal justice, income inequality and diaspora/immigrant media, particularly Haiti and coverage of Africa. There’s an overwhelming amount of chatter in our 24/7 media world and if I didn’t physically need to write, I wouldn’t add to the noise. My goal is to rise above and add new perspective to popular conversations. Follow me on Twitter.
