Cohron named among Top Women in Alabama Media

Posted

Jennifer Cohron, the Daily Mountain Eagle's features editor, will be among 25 women honored at the inaugural 2019 Top Women in Alabama Media awards dinner on Nov. 4 in Birmingham.

Business Alabama's Top Women in Alabama Media program celebrates women in every role of media, highlighting those making a difference in their communities.

Cohron, a graduate of Cordova High School and the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has been with the paper since 2007. She has served as the editor of WALKER Magazine since 2015 and as the Eagle's features editor since 2017.

She is the cohost of the Eagle's first podcast, Left on Red, which launched earlier this month. 

Cohron was nominated by publisher James Phillips, who cited her work covering the destruction and rebuilding of her hometown of Cordova following the April 2011 tornadoes as well as her work with local groups such as the Walker Area Community Foundation and the Carl Elliott Regional Library. 

She is the daughter of Rocky and Gloria Williams of Cordova. She is married to Zac Cohron, and they have one son, Noah Wyatt.  

Members of the inaugural class of Top Women in Alabama Media were nominated by friends, coworkers and the public and represent all types of media across the state: broadcast, print, agency and digital. 

A panel of judges selected 25 women who will be honored at the Nov. 4 dinner, which will be held at Birmingham’s Hyatt Regency Wynfrey Hotel.  

Sharyl Attkisson, a nonpartisan investigative journalist, five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting, will give the keynote address. 

Honorees will also be profiled in the December issue of Business Alabama magazine.
