Steve will lead a session on how he led pro/am projects between his students and the Boston Globe. This Pro/Am approach landed his students on ABC News’ 20/20. 

Steve Fox has 25 years of experience as an editor and reporter for print and online publications, including 10 as an editor in various capacities at The Washington Post‘s award-winning Web site. Prior to joining The Post, he was a sportswriter and editor at different publications for about 10 years, including serving as the national college basketball writer for United Press International.

Steve has been involved with Web journalism since the mid 1990s. He joined The Washington Post’s Web site in 1996, just months after the site went live on the Web. He edited one of the first news blogs on the Web and was involved in planning and editing multiple multimedia projects at The Post.

At The Post, he was part of news teams that won numerous awards, including the Online News Association’s award for Most Creative Use of the Medium in 2004, as well as the EPPY award for Best Internet News Service in 2004. He left in October 2006 after spending 15 months as the liaison between the print newsroom and the Web newsroom. During that time he facilitated training of print editors and reporters in everything from shooting video to taking part in online chats to understanding the ebb and flow of the online newsroom. Prior to that he managed the morning news operation of the 24-hour site, making decisions on what went on The Post’s homepage during the busiest part of the online day. He was also part of The Post’s online political team, serving as national/and political editor during the 9/11 terror attacks and the 2002 midterm elections and guiding coverage of the post-election debacle of 2000.
