Your Host



I’m Mark Coatney, SVP for Digital at Al Jazeera America. You can find me here, on LinkedIn, or on email here. You may remember me from such Websites as Tumblr, where I run media partnerships for 3 years pre-Yahhoo, or pre-Tina Brown Newsweek, where I was an editor with primary responsibility for social media and the creator of the Newsweek Tumblr, as well as handling TwitterFacebook and other audience engagement platforms for the magazine.

Before that I was a writer and editor for Time magazine and was one of the first editors of its Website, Time.com. I’m a graduate of the University of Kansas, and do indeed believe that there’s no place like home.
