Wendell Jamieson

Wendell Jamieson

Wendell Jamieson is a prize-winning, New York-born and raised writer and editor who spent 30 years covering every major story the city had to offer – from riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, to the Crash of TWA 800 in 1996 to 9/11 and its aftermath. He has worked for four major New York newspapers, beginning as a copy boy, and is perhaps best known in journalism circles for editing “Portraits of Grief,” the thousands of profiles of victims of 9/11 that appeared in The New York Times.

From 2013 to 2018, Wendell Jamieson was the Metro editor of The Times, where he led major investigations, such as a deep look at the treatment of immigrant women who work in nail salons, and the litany of reasons that New York’s subways are falling apart. The Times’ Metro department won two prestigious Polk Awards, and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist four times, during Jamieson’s tenure. Metro also became more digitally focused during Jamieson’s years at the helm, and was known for its colorful, flavorful writing about New York City’s characters and hidden stories.

Wendell Jamieson is also the author of two books – “Father Knows Less,” which is about answering the crazy questions from his young son and was published in 2007 by H.P. Putnam’s Sons, and “New York By New York,” published in November 2018, by Assouline, which chronicles the various social and cultural movements of 20th Century New York. The New York Times said, “‘New York By New York’ is the perfect gift.” He has appeared on The Today Show, Martha Stewart and CUNY-TV, among other outlets, talking about his work.
