I'm Margaret Thompson. I am a freelance journalist and videographer. At the moment, I spend most of my days as an Associate Producer with WVIZ PBS and 90.3 WCPN in Cleveland. I recently wrapped up studying narrative nonfiction and documentary storytelling at Ohio University, where I'm earned a Master’s degree in Public Media. Prior to coming to the “north coast,” I earned a Bachelor degree in Journalism from Kent State University and worked as a print journalist writing about education and small town issues in Northeast Ohio.

I can't seem to resist taking on new challenges and have taken on numerous media jobs from working on the sets of reality television shows to managing social media for a production house and editing vlogs for a South African entrepreneur. I'm always in pursuit of a story and often forget my cup of coffee in the microwave.

I hope we'll get to work together sometime soon. I'd love to hear your story.




I thoroughly enjoyed working with Margaret! Her creative flair, work-ethic and altruistic attitude make her an absolute pleasure to work with! Would hire again!

Margaret Thompson created beautiful videos for our farmer’s market and the customer service she provided throughout the process was very professional and friendly. I plan on working with her in the future.
