Google looks at JSON-LD to find article metadata (headline, publisher, image, etc).

We were populating the image using a specific crop, which does not exist for video posts so the image was blank. We hypothesized Google was then reverting to using the author image.

To fix this, we added the share image to the JSON-LD which exists for the video template in hopes Google will start to use that image instead of author images.
