David Wald, a producer and editor who brought depth, passion, and visual expertise to award-winning education coverage for the “PBS NewsHour,” as well as network television series and documentaries, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 61.

David Wald

Wald was most recently the supervising producer for the New York City bureau of Education Week Video. He had previously served in that role for Learning Matters TV, which Education Week acquired last summer. Over the past decade, he oversaw the development of dozens of stories for the “PBS NewsHour” on a range of education topics, including the impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans’ schools, the common-core standards, and Internet access in rural communities.

Earlier in his career, he was a senior producer on Michael Moore’s Emmy Award-winning magazine show “TV Nation,” and he produced a documentary series about Doctors Without Borders, filmed in often-dangerous circumstances around the world.
