Jill Murphy, Vice President, Editorial Director
Jill Murphy is Vice President, Editorial Director at Common Sense Media. Jill joined Common Sense in January 2005, built the Editorial department with Editor-in-Chief, Liz Perle, and served as Deputy Managing Editor and later Managing Editor before becoming Editorial Director in 2010. She oversees the ratings and reviews for all media channels including movies, TV, games, web, apps, music, and books. She also develops and manages the content strategy for parenting advice through our blog, tips, and Q and A's. Jill also works closely with content partners including Huffington Post, Yahoo!, DirecTV, Comcast, Netflix, and more, to further leverage the library of Common Sense Media reviews and advice. Jill's commitment to Common Sense affords her the opportunity to help families avoid the TV shows she is devoted to. She serves as the resident expert on any and all reality TV, late 80s/90s sitcoms, and other useless pop culture trivia that she claims is "for work".
Jill holds a BA from San Francisco State University in Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts, with an emphasis on writing and media literacy. She shares the TV with her 5-year-old daughter, who watches Odd Squad and Sofia the First; her 2-year-old daughter who watches Thomas and Elmo; her husband, who watches sports and can't wait for more Walking Dead; and her dog, who watches the door.
