Clay Arnold

Clay Arnold is an Emmy award-winning Journalist and Media Manager in a career that spans 13 years covering local, national and international news. Clay comes to Rare from Al Jazeera English. Prior to AJE, Clay was the Senior Producer for Huffpost Live where he helped Huffington Post launch their digital broadcast network and video channel. He’s a native of the “Bluegrass State” and therefore overly enthusiastic about bow ties, bourbon and (in his opinion) THE only Wildcats that matter. When he’s not working, you can find Clay at the dog park with his boxer “Winnie” or playing flag football with his friends.
