Joanna-headshotMy name is Joanna Fantozzi and I am a features journalist. I am always on the lookout for unusual journalism stories that go beyond the sensationalism, grit, and grind of everyday headlines. Whether it is a map of segregation in New York public schools published in a local newspaper that was picked up by New York 1, or an in-depth interview with a well-known New York City chef about his journey from drug addiction to culinary success, my work can best be described as reporter by trade, and storyteller by practice.

You can also find my work in the style section of The New York Times, the Eats or TV sections of The New York Daily News, the travel section of The New York Observer, on the New York-based features website Narratively. I am currently an associate editor and news reporter for The Daily Meal: a website dedicated to extensive coverage, recipes, and multimedia for “all things food and drink.”

I was trained at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, where I had experience in creating and editing large-scale multimedia projects, and also dabbled in radio journalism, where several features that I wrote and produced were broadcasted on WGXC and WHCR radio in upstate New York.
