My names is Jonathan Owen Binder. You can call me Jon. I am from Chicago, lived in Atlanta for five years, and now I am on my way to Portland. My most recent venture was with CNN Radio working as a Media Producer. There, I told stories and helped direct CNN Radio News Day. I have also been the Sound Director for the style of News Day and for CNN Radio branding. My experience with CNN goes well beyond just audio. I also helped develop a social media strategy for CNN Radio and manage our Twitter, SoundCloud and blog. And prior to CNN Radio, I worked with CNN.com Interactive. There I focused on the multimedia presentation of CNN.com – shooting and editing photos and video, building graphics and galleries. Between two cities and across several platforms, it’s been a thrilling ride so far. I’m excited to see the next challenge around the corner.

In my time with CNN Radio, I have worked hard to help the brand, both in the sound and presence on the web. I developed a social media strategy with CNN Promotions that included the use of Twitter, SoundCloud and the CNN Radio blog on CNN.com. Then like a mad scientist, I went to work developing the audio signature of CNN Radio. This involved the sound of CNN Radio News Day and the original audio logos. Feel free to listen below to a few examples of my audio branding.
