David Boeri

journalist, WBUR

After Edward R. Murrow awards, Emmy awards, Radio and Television News Directors Association awards, Society of Professional Journalists awards and after being named Boston’s Best Political Reporter, David Boeri is making WBUR his next venue for award-winning journalism. David has reported stories such as the wars in El Salvador and Kosovo, environmental issues in Belize, politics in Canada and organized crime in Boston. While David’s television work at WCVB-TV and WGBH-TV is legendary, his entire career in broadcasting is impressive. In the early days of public radio in Alaska, he worked at KFSK in Petersburg, where he would sign off with “You’re listening to KFSK, the only station on your dial.” David is a writer at heart, and he has contributed to publications such as *The New York Times Sunday Magazine*, *The Boston Globe*, *Oceans*, *Yankee*, *Boston Magazine*, and *The Boston Phoenix*. David is the author of two books. After several years as a commercial fisherman in Boston, he wrote “*Tell it Good-bye Kiddo: The Decline of the New England Offshore Fishery*.” He later lived and hunted with Eskimo whalers in Northwestern Alaska and authored *People of the Ice Whale* (E.P. Dutton; Harcourt, Brace) about an endangered culture’s hunt for an endangered whale.
