Tom Bunting is a writer, photographer and producer currently studying journalism and political communications at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. Tom is interested in multimedia reporting on politics, media, and social movements. He also likes writing about less important things like movies and video games and technology.
Tom was the News Director for Emerson Independent Video for two semesters in 2016-2017, vastly expanding the coverage direction and scope of one of the nation’s largest college news organizations. Under Tom’s watch, EIV News vastly expanded their field reporting team, turned their website into Emerson’s premiere student news website, and produced a four-hour multi-state live election special for the 2016 Presidential Election. It was neat.
He’s currently the Executive Producer of EIV News at 9, the organization’s flagship weekly live newscast, and the Political Editor for EIVNews.com.
Tom co-hosts a podcast about progressive politics for the Unpresidented media empire. He’s interned at the Organization for Economic Development and NXVL.
Tom studied photography and filmmaking at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco. His work has been featured on the cover of Umlaut literary journal, and he’s partnered with organizations like NVXL, Option Explore, and SOTA World Music.
He is available to freelance for all of these services. Say hi!
