Marsha Cooke grew up in the Bronx and is the proud daughter of Jamaican immigrants. She spent 24 years at CBS where she served as the Asia Bureau chief, senior broadcast producer for CBS Evening News, executive editor of content for CBSN, and vice president of news services for more than 200 CBS affiliates and international news partners. During her time at The Tiffany Network, she visited North Korea three times, covered countless natural disasters, the O.J. Simpson trial, the Rodney King trial and the Fukushima nuclear disaster and won an Emmy.
Presently, she is the senior vice president of content strategy and community at VICE Media. Cooke is thrilled to be at a company setting the standard in new media by telling unique stories about our world–ones we are challenged to listen to but need to hear. As part of her role, she acts as the brand ambassador for a company promoting inclusiveness, collaboration and open communication.
Through it all, Cooke has held close her love for a great story; her keen eye for talent; and, most importantly, her strategic thinking–none of which would exist without her years spent at Temple.
