Carly Testimonials


I had the pleasure of working with Carly at The Hollywood Reporter for many years and as one of her supervisors during that time, I can say without reservation that she was one of the brightest and most conscientious and hard-working individuals on the newspaper’s staff. I watched Carly develop as a copy editor/page designer and then take the next step to reporter, an assignment she asked for. Upon getting it, she threw herself into the complex technology beat with the aplomb of a seasoned veteran. My sense is she will one day add successful author and/or award-winning documentarian to her list of accomplishments.

Carly immediately tackled tough beats with her insightful interviewing skills and sensitive, thoughtful prose. She also brought a knack for finding fascinating personality profiles and had multiple skills in her toolbox, producing video pieces. Above all, Carly is  a natural storyteller. She tackled every assignment I threw at her and brought back stories I wanted, yet that were singularly hers. You’d do well to consider this professional for your operation.

Carly is an excellent writer. She has the story-telling gene. She can write–and has done so for my company–engaging stories about other people. She demonstrated that for us and for several years writing interesting columns for The Hollywood Reporter daily magazine. I continue to use her services as we have needs.

Carly is a hard worker, eager to apply her efforts wherever her talents would be of the most use to the team. She consistently did her best to master her beat and submit accurate, thorough and professional work. Equally important, Carly is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.

Having worked with Carly Mayberry as her editor at The Hollywood Reporter, I can attest that Carly was a talented and conscientious contributor to our publication. As a reporter and writer, Carly was always diligent and thorough, writing in a clean and accurate prose style as well as meeting deadlines in a quick-paced, daily news environment. She worked well with her colleagues and was a very collaborative member of our team. She also earned high marks from those she interacted with outside of the publication for her professional manner.
