William Troop

Editor/Reporter
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.
