Why Journalist Embraces the Emotional Intensity of Reporting - Yoav Gonen

Yoav Gonen returns to Capture Your Flag to build upon his 2009 interview with a 2010 conversation with host Erik Michielsen. In Chapter 2 of 17, Gonen, a New York Post education reporter, shares why he finds the emotional intensity interviewing people for news stories so appealing. Gonen, who did not grow up in an emotionally intense family, is drawn to the emotional range - the highs, the lows, in his reporting role at the New York Post newspaper, where he covers education across New York City. Gonen earned his BA in English from the University of Michigan and his Masters in Journalism from New York University.
