Jason Fields (National News Editor)

Jason Fields

An online journalist since 1995, Jason has worked for news organizations such as The New York Times, Washington Post and Associated Press.

At the AP, he created and managed a team that produced interactive features syndicated to CNN, Yahoo! News, ABCnews.com and dozens of other news organizations both in the United States and abroad. He worked as part of the group that produced the online component of an AP investigation that won the Pultizer Prize in 2000, “The Bridge at No Gun Ri.”

In his time as Project Thunderdome's national editor, Jason helped to plan and build a channel of daily national news coverage used on the websites of Digital First Media's 75 daily newspapers. He also had the opportunity to lead teams in creating a number of multimedia enterprise packages, one of which, "Firearms in the Family: The Role Guns Play in American Lives (http://data.digitalfirstmedia.com/guns/)," has been nominated for numerous awards.

Outside of work, Jason is passionate about books, video games, travel and his family (including a brand-new son born on Dec. 31, 2013, and one who's been around for quite a bit longer), not necessarily in that order.
