Congrats to David Person

ASBCC board member, journalist, podcast and documentary producer, for his creative producer role in the award winning podcast series “Finding Tamika”. “Finding Tamika,” released spring 2022 and it’s an immersive listen. It’s put together in the style of a neo-noir, true crime drama. Voices including actress/director Erika Alexander (her voice, rich with character), Rebkah Howard (Tamika’s aunt), other members of Huston’s family, Huston’s friends as well as South Carolina officials who worked the case, including Trey Gowdy, who went on to become a U.S. congressman and then a Fox News host. James T. Green oversaw post-production, including the vibey score and sound, with significant input from Alexander. Person’s role included sketching out the arc and breaking it up episodically. “Finding Tamika” ended up being around five hours long, told over 10 chapters, the majority of which are around 30 minutes each, with a seven-minute prologue and 54-minute epilogue. In early 2023, the “Finding Tamika” creative team traveled to New York for the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Awards, perhaps the most prestigious award in journalism. “Finding Tamika” was honored along with projects from HBO, CNN, CBS News, PBS, Washington Post and other notable outlets. Like a Grammy winning album or Academy Award winning film, this kind of recognition will allow “Finding Tamika” to reach a wider audience.
