Meet John Brady

My friend John Brady, otherwise known as The Man In Black (hereinafter referred to as TMIB) maintains a Blog worthy of your perusal. As an editor, author and teacher and friend, I rely on him to offer guidance and encouragement.

I met Brady at least ten years ago when he and several concerned listeners organized a significant protest aimed at one of Boston's NPR affiliates, the great and powerful WGBH-FM. The station's decision to terminate a program called Music America, an eclectic five-hour mix of jazz and popular music hosted by Ron Della Chiesa, one of Boston's most beloved djs, caused consternation and a ground-swell of support. John Brady was among the founding members of The Committee To Save Music America", and that's when I met him.

John Brady ... I mean TMIB .... is currently Visiting Professional at the Scripps School of Journalism, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, where he has taught magazine editing and writing since 2003. He has also taught at Boston University, Indiana State University, Tufts University, Emerson College, and in 1996 he was Hearst Visiting Professor at the University of Missouri Journalism School.

He writes a monthly column on magazine editing for Folio:, the magazine for magazine management. For the past 25 years he has led magazine editing workshops at annual and regional Folio: conferences. Since 1976 over thirty-five thousand publishing professionals have attended his presentations.
