John Rosman is the digital editor for KPBS News. He oversees all news content on and across all digital properties. Prior, John was the social media editor for Fronteras Desk.

Before heading south, John was a digital producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting. There he led the flagship radio program Think Out Loud in all aspects of digital media. Working with OPB's cultural website, Arts & Life, he also produced multimedia features.

By way of metro Detroit, John is a proud graduate of the University of Oregon's School of Journalism. He has worked as an editor in television and film. But he found his passion for public radio during a long winter, in a lonely hotdog stand.

When John's away from the office, you can find him catching up on all the sun he missed in Oregon.
