For nine years, John has guided news operations for WNYC, New York Public Radio, and grown its capacity for breaking news, election coverage and investigative reporting.
And he shares nearly everything he does. In the spirit of public media, and in the public interest, John peels back his processes so that others might learn from them. He does this on his blog, at journalism conferences and at events such as SXSW Interactive and ONA11 in Boston. He has been an adjunct lecturer at Columbia University and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and co-teaches a data-journalism class at The New School University.
His career includes work as a police reporter at two Wisconsin newspapers and as science editor at Discovery Channel Online.
