John Keefe

Sr Exec Producer-News
WNYC Radio
John Keefe is the Senior Executive Producer for News at WNYC, New York Public Radio, where he guides the station's overall news operation. His particularly focus has been on the station's breaking news capacity, election coverage, data journalism and editorial partnerships. Keefe also works to extend public radio's crowdsourced reporting beyond its typical audience. As part of that effort, he led hands-on prototyping projects in Southeast Detroit and Miami's Little Haiti to better link journalists and residents through texting. The projects, part of "The Takeaway" radio program from WNYC and Public Radio International, won a Knight-Batten Special Distinction Award for innovation in journalism. Keefe collaborates with Stanford's Institute of Design on "design thinking" projects and has taught journalism classes at Columbia University, The New School University and the City University of New York. A self-described "protojournohacker," Keefe dabbles in the Ruby, Processing and Javascript programing languages.
