Adrian Ma is an award-winning journalist who joined WBUR’s Bostonomix team in 2019. Through his reporting, he aims to help Greater Bostonians understand the people, businesses, and trends that shape the region’s many economies. 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 the unlikely rise (and sudden fall) of cranberries in China and the impact of mass shootings on the school security industry. He's also explored how a small Ohio dairy became a Japanese retail giant and sprinted through the freezing streets of Chicago to capture ‘economist speed-dating.’

In 2019, he received a National Edward R. Murrow Award and a Gracie Award for his story on why the Chinese sunk money into American softball.

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.

Some years ago, he worked as a prep cook in a ramen shop.
