Jakob Lazzaro

Digital Producer

Jakob Lazzaro is a digital producer at WESA and WYEP. He comes to Pittsburgh from South Bend, Ind., where he worked as the senior reporter and assignment editor at WVPE and had fun on-air hosting local All Things Considered two days a week, but he first got to know this area in 2018 as an intern at WESA (and is excited to be back). He graduated from Northwestern University in 2020 and has also previously reported for CalMatters and written NPR's Source of the Week email newsletter.

Jakob grew up mostly in Charleston, South Carolina, but was born in Stockholm, Sweden and lived in Sydney, Australia for several years in the late 2000s. When he's not helping write Inbox Edition or moving stories around on WESA's homepage, he can be found admiring Pittsburgh's geography and architecture, trying out local restaurants with his partner and petting their cat, Pistachio.

He can be reached at jlazzaro@wesa.fm.
