RNS has been a vital resource for us since the start of the show. In an age when a religion is present in so many events around the world, it is more important than ever to have a religion news source that is resolutely secular, objective, and non-sectarian. The appointment of Jerome Socolovsky as editor-in-chief of RNS is exciting news for our community. Jerome is an award-winning veteran religion correspondent for Voice of America Radio, who has also worked for NPR and the Associated Press. Jerome joins Welton to discuss this recent announcement, his career so far, and his priorities for fostering excellence in religion journalism.
