My name is Alexa Ard, and I am a national video producer for McClatchy. I cover national breaking news, and I produce videos for McClatchy’s 30 local newsrooms across the country, including The Miami Herald and The Sacramento Bee. I’ve also worked on the McClatchy Studios’ team to produce a 10-episode documentary series called The War Within. The series was recognized by The White House News Photographers Association’s 2019 Eyes of History: Multimedia Contest.

I am also the recipient of a ‘People’s Voice’ Webby – Best Use of Interactive Video for my work on a collaborative McClatchy project called Trump’s Inner Circle: The Ties to Russia.  

Before joining McClatchy, I worked with translators to produce multimedia content for a bilingual website called Noticiero Móvil and traveled to Trinidad and Belize for a nonprofit called the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF). I created two short documentaries about the work PADF was doing in those countries. My work has also been published in USA Today, the Reno Gazette-Journal, News21 and Reno Public Radio

Through journalism I want to help people feel heard and stay informed. And, if possible, I’d also like for my work to create positive change in some way.
