Jakob Lazzaro

Newsroom Intern

Jakob Lazzaro is an intern at WESA, covering all sorts of things as a general assignment reporter. He studies journalism and history at Northwestern University and previously worked at his hometown alt-weekly – the Charleston City Paper in Charleston, South Carolina. 

Jakob first came to southwestern Pennsylvania in early 2018, covering the 18th congressional district special election for Medill On the Hill – Northwestern’s Washington, D.C.-based undergraduate political journalism course. He's a big fan of exploring Pittsburgh and believes true podcast fans listen at 0.25 speed.
