Managing Editor, Digital News

Lisa Creamer is WBUR's managing editor for digital news.

She began working at WBUR in 2013, and has also served as a news editor and producer specializing in digital journalism. Her editing eyes have combed over countless stories and contributed to dozens of special projects. She's always on the hunt for unique or impactful local news stories.

Most recently, Creamer co-led the editorial vision and execution of WBUR's Field Guide to Boston project, WBUR's massive digitally-focused, cross-platform collection of hundreds of original or archival stories designed to deepen our audiences' understanding of the city.

We had lots of fun explaining many weird and wonderful realities of Boston that we know you love to hear public radio reporters untangle. Whether online, on-air or on stage at Cityspace, journalists from every corner of the station made – and plan to forever add to – the Field Guide to help our neighbors connect with us and each other.

If you're new in town and want a manageable and delightful orientation to the city, sign up for our super informative limited series newsletter, Newcomer's Field Guide to Boston. Be sure to also check out the tips on vibes, restaurants and more that locals shared about their neighborhoods.

Previously, she joined Poynter's 2021 Leadership Academy for Women in Media. Many moons before that, she worked as a Metro correspondent for The Boston Globe from 2013 to 2015, and interned at The Huffington Post and MassLive while in college. She was selected as a 2015 journalism fellow for the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics.

Creamer graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is originally from western Massachusetts, and highly recommends an autumn day trip to the Pioneer Valley. The apple cider doughnuts at Atkins Farms are incredible.
