Jeb Sharp

I joined the staff of The World in 1998 and have done almost every job in the newsroom since: reporter, producer, podcaster, backup host, show runner, special correspondent and now editor. Clearly I can't get enough of the place. I have reported for the show from Belgium, Bosnia, Canada, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, France, Haiti, Gaza, Israel, Kosovo, the Netherlands, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, the UK and across the US. I’ve received some nice honors along the way: a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard, two Overseas Press Club awards for “History of Iraq” and “How Wars End,” a Dart Award for “Rape as a Weapon of War, ” and a Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists for “Rwanda: Trying to Move On.”
