Josh Jackson

Josh Jackson is currently the Special Projects Producer at WBGO-Newark, where he is the station's blogger-in-chief and leading caffeine consumer. Josh hosts Live at the Village Vanguard, a monthly concert series from the legendary New York jazz club. He is also the creator and host of Living With Music, a multimedia riff about jazz, discovery and other big ideas.

He started with a full-time gig and volunteer host position at WWOZ in New Orleans, landed a temporary production assistant job at American Routes and attended public radio boot camp at Murray Street Productions in New York. He has produced award-winning documentaries and more than 250 live concert recordings while at WBGO.

He still believes that radio is a legitimate career path. No one has the heart to tell him the truth.
