ThreeSixty Journalism recently welcomed Theresa Malloy to its leadership team as program manager. Malloy is a St. Thomas graduate (COJO ’13) who has volunteered with ThreeSixty for nearly 10 years.
“I am so excited to join the ThreeSixty team,” Malloy said. “Empowering diverse voices is fundamental to building future leaders in newsrooms and other professional workplaces.”
Malloy brings professional writing, editing and digital media experience to her new role, as well as a passion for producing and sharing meaningful stories, particularly ones from underrepresented communities. She’ll focus on curriculum development and delivery, student engagement and success, and more.
“Theresa’s journalism skillset, demonstrated passion for ThreeSixty and affinity for St. Thomas are a unique package,” ThreeSixty Executive Director Chad Caruthers said. “We’re thrilled she’s part of our leadership team. Our students and program alumni are the ultimate beneficiaries.”
Most recently, Malloy was digital senior producer at KSTP, where she earned two Upper Midwest Emmy awards for breaking news coverage and special reporting on KSTP’s “Hell to Heartland” series. Her previous newsroom experience includes national news editor at LAKANA; Twin Cities Medical magazines editor; BringMeTheNews radio script writer; interim managing editor at Sun Patriot Group; and community editor at both The Laker and Dakota County Tribune.
In addition to her Emmy awards, Malloy earned ECM Newspapers Community Leadership Award for reporting on domestic violence series; ECM Newspapers In-Depth Reporting Award for coverage on state fire department issues; Better Newspaper Contest Award for Feature Photo; COJO Department Outstanding Senior St. Thomas; SPJ Mark of Excellence National Finalist for Online News Reporting; Pauline Lambert Advocacy Award for sex assault reporting; and the Minnesota Newspaper Better Newspaper Association Contest FOIA Award.
