I'm Margaret Cavalier. I am a freelance journalist and videographer. At the moment, I spend most of my days as a Producer with WVIZ PBS and 90.3 WCPN in Cleveland.
I produce the award-winning children’s television show, “NewsDepth.” From sourcing stories to script writing and motion graphics, I am intimately involved with the full show production.
A few years back earned a Master’s degree in Public Media from Ohio University. I spent a year there studying narrative nonfiction and documentary storytelling. 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.
