Texas Public Radio has hired Joshua Peck to cover technology and entrepreneurship.
He will start in August.
Peck is currently interning at ProPublica through a partnership with the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting.
Peck graduated in sociology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. His reporting has focused on policing. He has worked with Texas Public Radio as an intern and freelancer for several years and is an alumnus of The New York Times Student Journalism Institute, where he produced a profile on the family of a victim of police violence.
Before that, he was a news editor at the Paisano, his university’s independent student newspaper.
