Digital Coordinator & Video Producer, The Philadelphia Tribune
Aaron Eaton is the Digital Coordinator and Video Producer at The Philadelphia Tribune where he helps cultivate the digital audience for the oldest continuously published African American newspaper in the country and also feeds his passion for visual storytelling by documenting Black voices in and around the Greater Philadelphia region. He is an Emmy Award winning producer that previously used his love for storytelling and video production to create compelling content for two of Black Enterprise's nationally syndicated television shows and NFL Films' "Hard Knocks" and ESPN's "30 for 30". Since then, he has transitioned his skillset into print and digital journalism where he has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants from Facebook's Journalism Project and the Lenfest Institute of Journalism to help grow the Philadelphia Tribune's audience and enhance the overall quality of video. A member of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, the National Associated of Black Journalists, the Pen & Pencil Club, and a graduate of Morehouse College— Aaron has actively been involved in the Philadelphia news ecosystem with hopes of creating a pipeline for young visual journalists attending HBCUs looking to get more experience in journalism. In his free time, Aaron is an avid sports fan and historian. He also is a memorabilia collector specializing legendary Black athletes. He currently resides in South Philadelphia with his wife and infant son.
