Chad Snow joined the KJZZ newsroom in 2016, after two decades in the newspaper industry.
He previously served as night editor and copy-desk chief for The Arizona Republic, editing a wide range of award-winning stories, including two series — on the 2014 Yarnell Hill wildfire and the 2011 mass shooting near Tucson — that were Pulitzer Prize finalists. Before that, Snow, an Ohio State University graduate, worked as a sports reporter in Ohio, and as an editor for the East Valley Tribune in Mesa.
He has taught editing at Arizona State University, and has lectured at the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education and other organizations on credibility and accuracy, headline writing, and editing on deadline.
In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with cats and dogs, and following the trials and tribulations of Ohio's sports teams.
