Jarvey covers the intersection between tech and digital media
Jameson Doris of Min profiles The Hollywood Reporter Natalie Jarvey, who covers the digital media industry.
Doris writes, “The 28-year-old says this is what got her hooked, but it wasn’t until she began studying journalism in college that she discovered an interest in business journalism. At the time, the digital media industry was so young that few could have envisioned where it’d be at today. Jarvey could have never imagined that she’d go on to cover the rise of the YouTube star and the growth of streaming video services like Netflix.
“‘My first job out of college, covering the technology beat for a Los Angeles business paper, is what helped solidify my interest in covering the online video space,’ Jarvey says. ‘And when The Hollywood Reporter began looking for a dedicated digital media reporter a few years later, it was the perfect opportunity to blend my knowledge of the tech and digital industries with my personal interest in all things entertainment.’
“Her first cover story was an in-depth look at Amazon’s then-fledgling entertainment arm, Amazon Studios. THR photographed Transparent creator Jill Soloway and its star Jeffrey Tambor with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for the cover. For that story, Bezos gave THR his first full-length interview about his vision for Amazon Studios. “Growing up in the Seattle area, I would read about Bezos in the local newspaper,’ Jarvey says. ‘So it was a surreal moment to be sitting across from him conducting that interview.'”
