Skimm'd from the Couch: Samantha Barry

Published on: Dec 12, 2018fb-roundtwitter-roundemail-round

Samantha Barry grew up in Ireland. And she always knew news was the path for her. Sam started out her career as a researcher, and then an international reporter. Her reporting took her around the world, where she started to see the power of social media. She took that realization, and went on to help major news organizations build out their social media presences. We’re talking huge names like BBC and CNN. Now, she’s the editor in chief of Glamour. Anna Wintour has called her Glamour’s first digital-native editor...so it’s no surprise that Sam’s taking the magazine entirely online. On the couch, she talks to us about being fearless, making changes at an established company, and the three ways she negotiates for herself.
