How do I find a specific journalist?

Asked by serenityNOW (3419 points ) October 15th, 2010

So, I’d like to follow-up with a New York times reporter that had asked me a couple of months ago; I barely recall his last name and I don’t have any more info to go on, but I have some stuff I’d like to update him on. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you have the title of the article?

Nope – I don’t know if he even wrote it, or incorporated in another article.

@jonfreed Then I’d suggest you look for any reporter (from the Times) covering the subject the interview was about, and explain the situation. They’re journalists, they’ll be able to figure it out.

@bob: I don’t know if that answer was intended to be funny, but I just laughed out loud!

@jonfreed Um, no, I was serious (though I do have a certain funniness about me).

My point is that there are only so many journalists working at the Times, and they’re good at what they do, so finding out who was the reporter who talked to you should not be a problem.

Thanks Bob! I’ll bounce off of there.

If you have a vague recollection of his last name – say, the first letters – try looking him up here. Individuals are listed by last names and reporters’ names are in italics. Find a story by the reporter, click on his name et voila.
