January 2012 — Present
Two friends in our 20s, who hail from New York and Chicago. We met at a study abroad program in college, and reconnected years later working in Washington, D.C. By that point, we had become professional storytellers as producers for NBC News -- working in breaking news, political news, and documentaries. We clicked as colleagues, as friends, and as roommates, and it didn't take long for theSkimm to take off from our living room couch. Today, theSkimm reaches over 1.5 million subscribers and we have grown from the two of us on our couch to a team of sixteen Skimm HQ'ers.
