James Dawson covers Delaware politics and government as well as general assignment stories for Delaware Public Media. He came to Delaware from his home state of Idaho, where he served as a public affairs reporter and news director for the commercial radio network Inland Northwest Broadcasting. His reporting experience included state and local government, arts and culture, crime, and agriculture.
James contributed features and reports to the Northwest News Network, a collection of public radio stations across the Pacific Northwest, and served as an intern with NPR affiliate Northwest Public Radio in Pullman, Wash. He has a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting and digital media from the University of Idaho.
When James isn’t haunting the corridors of Legislative Hall, you might find him brushing up on his photography skills or shamelessly singing while driving all over Delaware.
