WSJ Reporter John Hechinger: New Face, Familiar Name

By Alexander Russo — March 28, 2007 1 min read

There’s a new Hechinger in town, or at least new to me. He’s John Hechinger, who’s been covering education for the Wall Street Journal for two years now (John Hechinger) and has already won some awards for his coverage.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because the Hechinger Institute at Columbia University runs seminars and briefings for education reporters, and is named after a famous NYT education editor, Fred Hechinger. Apparently, John’s father. Nice.
