On this episode, we salute John Vitti. John is a man of many skills. He’s been a layout, copy, and online editor/multi-platform editor for the sports department of the Boston Globe for 23 years. He’s also a high school journalism teacher, an elementary school newspaper advisor, and the founder of a journalism program for kids, Headliners in Education.

John talked with Mark Simon about all of those roles as well as the value of teaching journalism concepts to kids, even if they don’t want to become journalists.
