Sammi Turano

Hello, my name is Sammi Turano and I am the owner and editor in chief of TVGrapevine. I have been a member of the CCA since 2012 and served on several committees for the Real Awards, Critics Choice Awards and more. I, along with Bryan Kluger, created the Critics Choice Member Spotlight video, which was featured online prior to the 2023 CCAS. I would like to submit my personal statement to be a part of the Board.

I am a 39-year-old woman who has been working in the journalism field for the past fifteen years. It was a long, tough road, but one filled with hard work and determination. I came from humble beginnings and am continuing to work my way to the next level of my career.

Being on the Board would be an incredible honor because I not only represent the women in the field, but I also represent the underdogs who have worked hard to get to where they are today. We all have different stories, and I think mine is one of inspiration and hope.

I hope you will consider me for a position on your Board and I look forward to working with you!

  1. “How can I help?” — Sammi Turano. This question represents the Sammi Turano I’ve come to know, and it’s the attitude of an invested helper that we need on the CCA Board. Since she’s become a member of the Women’s Committee, I’ve been able to see how much passion she has for the CCA and how she wants to see it grow to benefit members. Her fresh perspective and ideas will be welcome addition to the Board. I’m a fan of all the female Board Members and will be voting for all of them, and we need more women in these top leadership roles — the positions with voting power. Sammi has a zest for our industry, cares about the membership, and will work to make the CCA a great place where we can all thrive. Vote Sammi!
