I research and teach journalism at 

the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. / @ProfEdmondson

My Work



I teach reporting and writing, the History of American Journalism, Communications Law 

and data journalism. I also serve as Graduate Director of the Journalism School.

I know learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. That's what I strive to be.

Data Journalism


Are you a beginner, expert, or somewhere in between? I offer a variety of instruction in data journalism using the methods of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) designed to prepare you for your next step. 



My scholarship explores the intersection of journalism, law and civil rights. My book, In Sullivan's Shadow, was published by University of Massachusetts Press 

in August 2019. 

This is me


I'm a third generation newspaperman.

Journalism is in my blood - all I ever wanted to do was write and tell true stories. My grandfather owned the Terrebonne Press back home in Louisiana, and my uncle was a journalist. In the dozen years I worked in newsrooms around the country I've covered just about every beat - cops, courts, politics, education, poverty, special projects. I continue my journalism in my research and writing about media, and I take great pride in educating the next generation of truth tellers. When I'm not committing journalism or traveling to teach journalism, I'm working on my farm in the Appalachian foothills. A locovore wannabe, I'm interested in local food economies and sustainability. When we meet, ask me about my goats and my garden!
