Allison Graves, Digital Producer

Allison Graves

Digital Producer

As the emerging platform producer, I’m considered a jack-of-all-trades, and a master of some. In my role, I help shepherd several digital projects including email newsletters and podcasts, and innovate video strategies. You’ll also see my byline on tampabay.com as I report on local stories that I hope pique your interest. I was a fact-checker for PolitiFact before this, keeping politicians honest, and later spearheaded MediaWise, a project aimed at teaching young students how to sort fact from fiction online. I spent almost two years appearing on Bay News 9 for PolitiFact, so I’m also a former TV personality, according to my mom. (You might have heard me on the radio for WUSF from time to time, too.) When I’m not working, you can find me at the St. Pete Saturday morning market, propagating plants and watching hours and hours of YouTube videos.
