Editor, News Hub
James Doubek is an editor and reporter for NPR's general assignment News Hub. He edits everything from quick breaking news stories and live blogs to complex features for NPR.org.
As a reporter he's written hundreds of breaking news stories, but has also taken deep dives into historical events such as the 1972 Munich Olympics attack and the time Americans went to fight for China during World War II.
Doubek also regularly manages NPR's social media accounts, homepage and sends breaking news push alerts. You can occasionally hear him on NPR's hourly Newscasts.
For three years he was an overnight digital producer, single-handedly manning NPR's entire online presence during big news events such as former President Donald Trump's unprecedented walk into North Korean territory. He's also had stints as a reporter for NPR's Business Desk and as a radio producer with Weekend Edition.
Doubek got his start at NPR as an intern at the Washington Desk, where he made frequent trips to the Supreme Court and reported on political campaigns.
