Get To Know Will Huntsberry

Background and Coverage

I’ll give you the tl/dr version of my history — I grew up in North Carolina, and, if you can believe it, began my journalism career in broadcast news. I spent some time at the Raleigh Public Record and NPR before making my way to San Diego in 2018. I knew I wanted to focus on reporting that has an impact, and that’s what we do here at Voice of San Diego.

What Makes a Good Story

The topics that interest me most are storylines that unfold over weeks, months or even longer.

Everyone has a different definition for what makes a good story, but for me it’s something that will capture people’s attention. It might have an aspect of mismanagement or corruption. Or it might simply be clear explanations and investigations of topics that we still don’t understand, like the skyrocketing cost of university.
