Meet the Team

Briana Koeneman

Digital Content Producer

Briana has the energy level of a child on a sugar rush, which comes in handy for her early mornings writing and producing at Newsy. She got her degree in magazine journalism from the University of Missouri, only to discover that multi-source online news videos were her true calling. On her off days, you can find Briana catching up on pretty much every show on Netflix, volunteering at the humane society, or catching up on the latest news, of course.
