MajorPlanet Studios A newsroom and production studio dedicated to redefining the way we tell multimedia stories with an emphasis on science, economics, and the environment.

MajorPlanet Studios is a newsroom and production studio dedicated to redefining the way we tell multimedia stories. We have the right people—journalists, producers, designers, and programmers—to pull together the drama, narrative and facts into digital packages with video, audio, text and interactive features. We report original stories, and help our partners tell their own. Our digital publishing platforms are designed to drive unique narratives on the Web, tablets and mobile devices. We focus on the role of science, the environment and economics in a changing world. MajorPlanet is run by three partners who have worked for print, radio, television and online publications for more than a decade. We are journalists, producers, radio reporters, writers and programers. Our principals have worked for and contributed to publications such as Scientific American, CNN.com, San Jose Mercury News, Christian Science Monitor, Slate, Discovery, National Geographic, Foreign Policy, and the Phnom Penh Post.
