Zach Wise, award-winning multimedia producer for The New York Times, will join Medill faculty in June as an Associate Professor.
Wise has worked as a multimedia producer, designer, photojournalist and university instructor. At the Times since 2008, Wise produced compelling multimedia projects including "Choosing a President," which won a Peabody award and garnered an Emmy nomination. Previously, Wise was senior multimedia producer at the Las Vegas Sun, where he was part of a team whose reporting on the high rate of construction deaths on the Strip won Pulitzer and Scripps Howard Foundation national awards for public service for the newspaper.
