Georgia Dawkins is “The Purpose Producer.” From ABC’s Good Morning America to Will Packer’s Central Ave, Georgia has worked within a multitude of television genres including local news, network news, talk shows, reality television, and entertainment news.
The award-winning producer and author got her start as a digital fellow with ABC News in 2008. Since then, she has gone on to produce television content for millions of viewers across the country. She has served as a television producer in local and national markets ranging from Tallahassee to Atlanta, and New York to Los Angeles.
However, Georgia’s journalistic prowess soon took her out of the local media market and on to the national stage. In 2016, she cemented her place in programming when she helped develop Sister Circle Live (TV One), a national talk show featuring four African-American female hosts.
In 2018, she published her first book while simultaneously launching Georgia Dawkins Media. Less than a year later, Georgia lent her talents to the forthcoming 24-hour Black News Channel as the Director of HBCU Services. In 2019, she began working as a segment producer for FOX’s first multicultural entertainment news and pop culture show Central Ave, executive produced by Hollywood powerhouse Will Packer.
Georgia’s debut memoir, Everybody Knows: The Power of Being in Position, details how she rose from humble beginnings, faced innumerable obstacles, and thrived in an industry that is known to be cutthroat and conniving. Through a mixture of faith, grit, determination, and raw and unadulterated ambition, Georgia shows the reader how to shift conversations through media, and create content that helps people heal.
