Joseph Capriglione works in the WNYC newsroom as an Associate Producer for New Jersey Public Radio.
He works with the station’s award-winning roster of hosts, editors and reporters to ensure that no stone in the state goes unturned, and that all New Jersey news gets to the air thoroughly vetted, and in a timely manner. His chief interests include development in New Jersey’s urban centers and the legacy of pollution left behind by decades of neglectful environmental enforcement in the Garden State.
Prior to joining the newsroom fulltime, Joseph worked as a freelance producer at WNYC, first for The Takeaway, and then for the Peabody Award-winning Brian Lehrer Show. He got his start in public radio as a general assignment reporter at Newark’s WBGO, where he covered Essex and Hudson county politics. He’s also done freelance reporting and production work for NPR, Marketplace and the BBC World Service.
