Jean-Marie PapoiDigital Producer
Jean-Marie Papoi has been a producer with Ideastream Public Media since 2016, creating award-winning content across multiple platforms. She is currently the digital producer for the Arts & Culture team.
After earning her Bachelor of Science degree from Kent State University, Jean-Marie started her career in public media as an associate producer for South Carolina Educational Television. There, she developed a strong foundation of video production by editing long-form programming and working on live event coverage.
Forever an Akron girl, Jean-Marie eventually moved back home and took on a role as a videographer with The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. In addition to filming new product videos and NASCAR races, a job highlight was riding in Goodyear’s then-new airship, Wingfoot One, in 2014 along with Robin Roberts.
Today, she considers it a privilege to be able to tell stories about the incredible people and places throughout Northeast Ohio.
