Jaci ClementCEO & Executive Director Fair Media Council
Jaci Clement is the CEO and Executive Director of the Fair Media Council, host of the podcast FMC Fast Chat and a writer on news and culture. Contact her for interviews when seeking an expert for media criticism, news trends, and advice for navigating today’s media landscape.
She has studied the content and character of local news for more than 20 years and can speak to its changes and their impact on the public’s right to know. She often speaks to organizations and at colleges to discuss the changing media landscape. Today, she is regarded as one of the most influential media scholars.
She is a former journalist and news executive, and she is often called upon to share insight into how business decisions impact journalism and newsrooms. She earned her first byline in a daily newspaper when she was in the fourth grade and has pursued her interest in news since then. She has worked for multiple news organizations and also was a freelance writer. Her work has appeared in news outlets around the country.
Before her current role, Jaci was an award-winning reporter, associate publisher and editor for Dolan Media’s Long Island Business News. Prior to that, she was with Newsday, then owned by The Times Mirror Co. There, she was responsible for communicating best practices across the company’s newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, the Baltimore Sun, and the Hartford Courant. Both jobs were instrumental in preparing her for her current role, as she gained expertise in understanding news media and its impact within the markets it serves.
She made headlines when, as a student journalist, she wrote an investigative piece that forced the resignation of a tenured professor. At the time, she also was a stringer for The New York Times. She has a B.A. in Communications/Journalism from Hofstra University.
