Will Huntsberry

Will Huntsberry is an assistant producer in NPR's elections unit, where he produced a piece about Don Gonyea's favorite campaign trail playlists, reported on the one place in Washington where former House Speaker John Boehner could feel like "a regular guy," and other stories that get beneath the surface of American politics.

He came to NPR in 2014 as Kroc Fellow, after graduating from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Since joining NPR, he has worked on the education desk, reported at KQED in San Francisco, and was part of the team that covered the 2015 church massacre in Charleston, S.C.

Previously, he worked for the Wall Street Journal and covered Raleigh, N.C. for a variety of news outlets.

  • Eugene Debs was the first major Democratic Socialist in American history, running for president five times in the early 1900s. NPR goes on a tour of his home in Terre Haute, Ind., ahead of that state's primary with Benjamin Kite, an avid Bernie Sanders supporter. Kite, one of the home's caretakers, says Debs laid the groundwork for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal, and likewise Bernie Sanders may be laying the groundwork for a major shift left in American politics.
  • Most weeks, a group of congressional staffers meet to practice meditation on high-stress Capitol Hill. Some keep their regular moments of mindfulness a secret from their coworkers.
  • First lady Michelle Obama took her Chinese counterpart, Peng Liyuan, to visit the pandas at the National Zoo — and revealed the baby panda's new name: Bei Bei.
