In chapter 9 of 9 in his 2009 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, New York City journalist Yoav Gonen shares why he finds working in a big city so fulfilling. Rather than meeting famous individuals or attending important events, Gonen finds satisfaction in the common things. Namely, he enjoys traveling five boroughs to report on the people and things that make New York City run each day. Gonen is an education reporter for the New York Post newspaper in New York City. He earned a masters in journalism from NYU and a BA in English from the University of Michigan.
