Stories from William Troop
As an editor at The World, I'm crashing against a deadline almost all the time that I'm in the newsroom, editing content for The World's many daily stories. When I get a chance, though, I like to report on my favorite topic: soccer. OK, actually soccer takes up most of my non-work life, but I'm cool with that.
I also consider myself a citizen of the world and a global nomad. I grew up in Mexico and Italy before moving to the United States for college and beyond. So what better place to work than The World?
That explains why I joined the original team that created The World in 1995. Since then, I've worn almost all the hats in our newsroom: producer, director, correspondent and editor. Before joining the team in Boston, I was a producer and editor at National Public Radio, and news director at NPR member station WAMU in Washington.
