The New York Times launched a new column Sunday in its Real Estate section called “Mortgages,” which is written by Bob Tedeschi. The first one can be read here. Not sure if this is a recurring column or not, but I liked it.
Tedeschi also writes the E-commerce report that appears in Monday’s paper, and he has sometimes written a column called The Practical Traveler.
A graduate of the Columbia Journalism School, Tedeschi spent his first post-graduate months in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, reporting about the social and political changes wrought by communism’s collapse. He then spent two years writing about business and telecommunications for The Connecticut Post, during which time he won two feature writing awards from the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists.
As a freelance journalist, Tedeschi has covered subjects from constitutional law to motorcycle rallies, and has also written and produced radio features for his local NPR affiliate. In addition, he has taught journalism, writing and literature at a community college, and taught creative writing to children at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. His work has appeared, among other places, in Wired magazine, Yankee magazine, and The New York Times sports section. He lives on the Connecticut coast.
