Francine Izumi Uenuma is currently the senior news video editor with The Washington Post Digital, working to ensure daily multimedia coverage on the Post’s web site. In addition to shooting and editing video, she liaises with various sections of the paper to present the best options for video, audio and podcasts to enhance the Post’s online coverage. She works with foreign correspondents to equip them and develop their multimedia skills, helping to garner video from Afghanistan to South Africa. Uenuma also hosts the World Briefing Podcast, a weekly discussion with those correspondents about what they are reporting and their experiences on the ground. Her career in journalism began with an interest in international news. She attended the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, completing a course of study on issues from the Cold War to the contemporary history of the Korean Peninsula.
