Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova has been described as both a producer and “fixer” and according to Fox Media’s CEO, was a key member of the team helping the team navigate around Kyiv, gathering details and translating. She is described as being passionate in helping the world know what is happening in her native Ukraine.
It’s common for networks and other media outlets to hire locals, often on a freelance basis, to become a part of their reporting teams all over the globe. Though most of their work is behind the scenes, they often play a key role in ensuring stories make it on air.
The term “fixer” is sometimes used to describe these individuals’ roles, but they typically work within ethical boundaries and don’t do some of the more negative actions commonly associated with the word, though some of their work may be dangerous and secretive.
In yesterday's attack near Kyiv, we have lost a beautiful brave woman – Oleksandra Kuvshinova – Sasha. She loved music and she was funny and kind. she was 24 years old. She worked with our team for the past month and did a brilliant job.
