Hello. I'm Tamara Banks and welcome to TazMedia's website! I am an Emmy Award winning freelance journalist, talk show host and documentary filmmaker, dedicated to creating social change through excellence in journalism. I'm also committed to providing informative and well-produced and written news stories and articles for broadcast and print on tight deadlines. My areas of expertise include: political issues, nationally and internationally, Southern Sudan and Darfur, community/civic engagement and social justice. My work has been featured in numerous broadcast and print mediums over the past 22 years.
I have had the opportunity to travel and see many parts of the world and gain insight and perspective on issues and events that impact us here in the U.S. If you have an area or issue-specific idea for an article or broadcast story, I would love to share my worldly experiences with your readers, viewers and listeners.
When producing video pieces, I work with award winning photographers and editors to ensure a top quality product.
I am also a media consultant and excited to share my knowledge and expertise with those interested in learning how to access the media and pitch your story or event and take your organization to the next level..
Because of my extensive experience as a journalist, activist and global thinker I frequently keynote and emcee a variety of events.
I look forward to sharing my insights and talents with you and your organization.
