Time & Location
About The Event
What goes into the stories we tell? Which ones resonate, which ones don’t? Join the Blue Ridge Chapter of PRSA at our December luncheon for a presentation on storytelling by Joe Williams, veteran journalist and Senior News Editor for U.S. News & World Report, in Washington, D.C.
Joseph P. Williams writes for the Healthiest Communities section of U.S. News & World Report, exploring and investigating the social determinants of health including poverty, racial inequity and access to care. He joined U.S. News & World Report in 2014 as an editor and writer in the News section, covering national news, politics and the U.S. Supreme Court. Before coming to U.S. News, Williams worked as a senior editor at Blue Nation Review; as a political analyst for print, television and radio outlets including “The Jeff Santos Show” and “Washington Watch with Roland Martin”; and as an editor and White House reporter for Politico. Previously, Williams worked as the living editor and the deputy Washington, D.C., bureau chief for The Boston Globe, the assistant managing editor for local news at the (Minnesota) Star Tribune, and a staff reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. A graduate of the University of Richmond, Williams was awarded a Nieman Fellowship by Harvard University in 1995 to study race and the judicial system.
