Daryl Khan, who is well known to the CUNY J-School community as a professor teaching reporting and writing fundamentals and as the New York bureau chief of the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, will take on a new role as director of the school’s Urban Reporting Program.
He succeeds NY1 political anchor Errol Louis, who ran the program for four years and will remain on the adjunct faculty.
Khan has been a reporter at The Boston Globe, New York Newsday, and The New York Times, covering breaking news, politics, prisons, poverty, and terror attacks. He is currently working on two documentaries focused on civil rights issues in the South.
“Many students – including many Urban Reporting students – have come to appreciate Daryl’s nose for a good story, his focus on shoe-leather reporting, and his passion for the civil rights of all New Yorkers,” said Dean Sarah Bartlett. “We are excited by his vision for the concentration.”
