Ten Things You Didn’t Know about the Political Media

The Falmouth Academy (FA) Community Series welcomes Rosie Gray, staff reporter and White House correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly on Thursday, December 14 at 7 PM in the Simon Center theater. The FA alumna will discuss the challenges of being a journalist in today’s political environment during her talk titled “Ten things you didn’t know about the political media.”

Described by Atlantic Politics and Policy Editor Yoni Appelbaum as a “force of nature—an absolutely tenacious and fearless reporter with a knack for spotting stories, and an uncanny ability to bring her subjects to life,” Ms. Gray joined the staff of The Atlantic in 2017 to report on global affairs and U.S. politics. She was assigned to the White House press corps just three months into her tenure.

After graduating from Falmouth Academy in 2008, Ms. Gray attended New York University where she interned and later served as a staff reporter for the Village Voice.  While there she made her mark as a reporter covering the Occupy movement in New York City. She later moved to BuzzFeed, an online publication where she covered two presidential campaigns before transitioning to foreign affairs, and, subsequently, to The Atlantic.

A former resident of Falmouth, Ms. Gray is currently writing a book about Breitbart News for HarperCollins.

Falmouth Academy’s Community Series is sponsored in part by the Woods Hole Foundation and is committed to bringing educational and cultural opportunities to the Cape community. All events are free. Seating is limited, please register below. 

Jung-Ho Pak, artistic director and conductor of the Cape Symphony will wrap up this year’s FA Community Series on April 3rd,  7PM when he talks about the future of performing arts.
