Georgia Dawkins is “The Purpose Producer.” From ABC’s Good Morning America to FOX’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.
Her memoir was honored in 2018 by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) as an Outstanding Literary Work. At 24-years-old, Georgia was tapped by Gulf Shore Business magazine’s 40 Under 40 regional leadership award. She has also served on the boards for NABJ and the Journalism and Women Symposium, where she was honored as a top 10 emerging journalist in 2014.
Georgia has a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism from Florida A&M University and currently serves on the board of visitors for the School of Journalism and Graphic Communications.
With all of her media expertise, recent exposure to an audience of more than half-a-million through her xoNecole Instagram takeover, and passion for helping future journalists and content creators, Georgia has launched the “Purpose Producer Podcast” to instill producers, writers, bloggers, reporters, and anchors with the knowledge she has learned on her journey thus far. She is also currently working on her second book set to be released in 2020.
