We’re very excited to announce two talented additions to Breaking News:
John Jacecko - John joins our West Coast creative team as a mobile developer focusing on our iOS app. A self-described Apple fanboy, he’s been building iOS apps for several years, helping Breaking News over the last several months as a contractor until we scooped him up full-time. His roots are in video game development, and he even owned a small game development firm a few years back.
Grace Johnson - Grace joins our New York team as a staff editor after freelancing and interning with us since the summer of 2011. Grace is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, where she was a part of the renowned Medill Innocence Project as a student investigator. In addition to her internship with Breaking News and NBCNews.com, she interned at the Times in Cape Town, South Africa, and at the Journal Times in Racine, Wisconsin. Follow her at @gracej89.
Welcome John and Grace!
