Adrian Ma is an award-winning journalist who joined WBUR’s Bostonomix team in 2019.

Have a question, story, or tip you’d like him to look into? Here are a few ways to get in touch.
Adrian took a left-turn into journalism after graduating from law school. Since then, he’s reported on how anxiety over mass shootings fed the school security industry and explored how a small Ohio dairy became a Japanese retail giant. He’s also covered protests in Hong Kong and sprinted through the freezing streets of Chicago to capture ‘economist speed-dating.’
He is a regular contributor to American Public Media’s Marketplace and previously worked for WCPN in Cleveland and WNYC in New York. He has a law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law and a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.
Some years ago, he worked as a prep cook in a ramen shop.
