& pOLITICAL STRATEGIST
IRL + ONLINE + ON-AIR
HELLO! I am a Gen X award-winning journalist and on-air contributor who speaks and writes like I have the common sense God gave me and was raised right. You can always find me at the intersection of politics, race, and today’s social issues trying to direct traffic in the right direction.
I am the host of the Ring the Alarm podcast and the upcoming The Gospel According to Jasmyne Cannick podcast.
Bylines, appearances, and producer credits aplenty, including the LA Times, Ebony Magazine, LA Sentinel, Los Angeles Magazine, CNN, FOX News, NPR, and more.
A few of my favorite quotes include:
“Do I look like booboo the fool?
“A hard head makes a soft behind.”
“Stop all that crying before I give you something to cry about.”
“Keep playing and see what happens.”
“You got me f—– up.”
and the timeless, “I wish a muthaf—- would.”

Just months after securing the conviction of Democratic donor and serial predator Ed Buck for the crystal meth overdose deaths of two Black gay men, Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, award-winning journalist Jasmyne Cannick is back to doing what she does best–using her platform to bring her trademark passion for finding and exposing compelling stories that are overlooked, underreported, or just ignored. In her new podcast series “Ring the Alarm” Jasmyne takes you to Jamaica where she speaks directly with lesbian, gay, and trans men and women about living in one of the most homophobic countries in the world.
Listen as Jasmyne follows lesbian, gay, and trans men and women on their journey using a modern-day underground railroad to seek asylum. In this special series, Jasmyne continues to provide much-needed context while calling attention to the plight of Black people here and abroad. “Ring the Alarm” reminds us all why Jasmyne continues to be a beloved voice for the voiceless.
