Jack Mitchell is an associate producer in WBUR's newsroom.
He previously worked as a project manager, editor and producer on Project CITRUS, an initiative aimed at expanding the quality, quantity and accessibility of WBUR's on-demand audio news. The project was made possible by a Google News Initiative grant.
Prior to CITRUS, Jack was a digital producer and editor for Here & Now, NPR's midday newsmagazine produced at WBUR. He started with the show as an intern. Jack managed Here & Now's website, producing and editing digital articles and social media posts, as well as shaping the overall digital strategy of one of public radio's flagship programs.
In 2019, Jack was selected for a fellowship in WBUR's iLab, leaving his regular Here & Now duties for one month to focus on a special podcast project.
He graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2016 with a dual degree in journalism and American studies. When he's not editing Google Docs or writing pithy Slack messages, Jack enjoys hiking in the White Mountains, running the stairs at Harvard Stadium and exploring Boston's live music scene.
