Meet the Team

Nathan Byrne

Director of Editorial Operations

When he's not running 5Ks dressed as Batman, surfing on cardboard or making videos to recruit monks — Nathan Byrne is probably at Newsy managing the day's editorial content. Or drinking coffee. Or both. Byrne covers media for Newsy, specializing in stories at the intersection of tech, entertainment and business. He also teaches a class on mobile video news and media analysis at the Missouri School of Journalism. Byrne previously worked as the eMedia Manager for KQTV in St. Joseph, Mo. He's lucky enough to have the best wife and sons in the world, as well as a pretty awesome dog.
