Jonathan A. Davis is an radio reporter, producer, and editor. He has worked in various newsrooms, on audio series for two public radio stations, and on a variety of independent podcast series. This includes serving as associate producer on The Intersection, the Edward R Murrow Award Winning audio series coming out of San Francisco’s NPR affiliate station KALW. During his time as a reporter and producer, the series also won San Francisco Press Club’s first place prize for best radio documentary. Beyond his public radio work, he has helped develop four independent podcasts from scratch including serving as producer and editor on those series.

Prior to working as a radio maker with KALW, he was a part of their Summer Journalism Fellowship and training program. He has also reported and produced news stories for KPFA, the legendary Pacifica Network outpost in Berkeley, Ca. Before audio journalism, Jonathan worked in a variety of other sectors including management consulting, sustainability consulting, financial services, workforce development, philanthropy, and the non-profit world; his two degrees are in Accounting / Business Management and Sustainability Studies. He says getting to tell the world’s stories through the magical medium of audio / radio / podcasts / synonyms is an honor. And he believes his non-linear career path helps bring forward unique perspectives that inform the stories he tells.
