Josh Robin - Political Reporter
Josh Robin joined NY1 in 2005 as the channel's Albany Reporter, and his arrival coincided with some of the state's biggest political stories in decades. Over the next four years, he reported on the resignation of Governor Eliot Spitzer, the ascension of Governor David Paterson and the worst fiscal crisis in a generation.
In late 2009 he left Albany to become a city-based political reporter. After reporting on Hurricane Sandy, he broke the story of how the city planned a multibillion dollar effort to increase its resistance to climate change, and reported from the Netherlands on how the Dutch prepare for higher sea levels.
Robin has also interviewed numerous newsmakers as the guest host for "Inside City Hall," NY1's nightly political program.
Robin came to television after a career as a newspaper reporter, most recently for the New York City edition of Newsday and, before, at The Seattle Times and The New York Times. At Newsday, he was part of a team that was a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize in spot news.
He began his journalism career as a college student in a Nairobi, Kenya-based program. While a stringer for the Nairobi Law Monthly, he reported on allegations of police brutality along the border with Sudan.
Robin received an undergraduate degree from Tufts and a master's degree from Stanford. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, journalist Manoush Zomorodi, and their children. He can be reached on Twitter @joshrobin.
