Another hire for Education Week and its expanding video department: Lisa Stark, formerly of ABC News and Al Jazeera America, joins Education Week as a broadcast correspondent.
Stark, who was most recently a correspondent at the now-shuttered Al Jazeera America, is an Emmy and Peabody award-winning journalist who has covered areas ranging from federal agencies to the Supreme Court to 9/11. Prior to joining Al Jazeera America, she had been a longtime correspondent at ABC News.
At Education Week, Stark will contribute to the publication’s video platform and to PBS NewsHour for its ongoing partnership with Education Week.
“Lisa brings a wealth of experience and an unswerving commitment to the kind of high-quality visual journalism and storytelling that deeply engages the audience we seek to serve,” said Education Week and EPE president and editor-in-chief Virginia B. Edwards in a statement. “Lisa will play a central and essential role as EPE continues to ramp up its video offerings for both broadcast and digital outlets.”
