P.J. Ziegler (Cover) is an Emmy-winning sports anchor and reporter at Cleveland, Ohio’s FOX8. When he’s not chasing the big sports story, he’s looking for that postcard image. His work has appeared in publications across the country, and you can find select photos on Getty Images.

Carrie Hunter (“Hurricane Michael Over Six Months Later”) is a filmmaker from Northwest Florida. After graduating from FSU’s film school, she worked as a Creative Services Director at Channel 3 in Pensacola and as an associate producer on the independent film The Lengths (available on Amazon Prime). Carrie moved to New York to work as an apprentice with the Directors Guild of America, gaining eligibility for guild membership on both coasts.  She was assigned to shows like Luke Cage, Law and Order, Kimmy Schmidt, Blindspot, and Ben is Back.


After completing the program, she returned to the south to produce her own work, including her current documentary This Is Six Months After Hurricane Michael. In the fall, she will be attending saw school at Georgia State University with a focus on intellectual property and entertainment law.
