Dory Jackson is a Digital Journalist. She considers herself to be a true pop culture snob with a focus on all things relating to film news. Although much of her writing is entertainment-based, she has enjoyed covering news within the political and business world as well. Her goal is to transition in broadcasting, whether it be video reporting, on-air news reporting or podcasting.
She earned her undergraduate degree from Randolph-Macon College in May 2016. Her focus was in Communications Studies and Journalism. She participated in the R-MC Cheer & Dance Team, Stinger Radio Station, and The Yellow Jacket Newspaper.
Her sophomore year of college is when she came to the realization that she was meant to pursue a career in entertainment journalism after attending Hot 99.5s Jingle Ball — an event where she had her first celebrity interviews with Fifth Harmony and Austin Mahone.
She's worked with news brands such as Celebuzz, Press Pass LA, MTV, and International Business Times. Through Newsweek, she's interviewed dozens of A-List stars, including the following: Zooey Deschanel, Michael B. Jordan, Kristen Bell, Alec Baldwin, Viola Davis, and Laverne Cox.
Dory currently works in New York City as a Staff Writer for Us Weekly and co-hosts the "Idol Nation" podcast.
