CEO & Founder of Clancynet / Former Anchor of CNN
Jim Clancy brings the experience of more than three decades covering the world to every project he engages. He didn’t just read about the collapse of Communism, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the siege of Beirut, the Rwanda Genocide, or all of the Iraq wars. He was there. His illustrious career includes award-winning reporting on the events that have shaped modern history.
Jim joined the newly created Cable News Network as its first national correspondent in 1981. He would go on to help shape CNN’s International image covering the Falklands war in Argentina and reporting from Beirut, Lebanon during the Israeli invasion in 1982. He lived in Beirut for 2 years and went on to live and work in Frankfurt, Rome and London bureaus. During this time, he won with the George Polk Award for his reporting on the genocide in Rwanda, the Alfred I. duPont Award for coverage of the war in Bosnia and an Emmy Award for reporting on the famine and international intervention in Somalia. In 2012, he won a national Emmy Award for coverage of the resignation of Pres. Hosni Mubarak of Egypt. He has also received FAO’s A.H. Boerma award for his coverage of global hunger.
Now based in Atlanta and heading up his own Media Consulting business, Clancynet LLC, Jim is focused on documentary projects, photography and sharing his experiences with young journalists in the U.S. and around the world.
