SHORT BIO

Jed Kim is a reporter for the Marketplace Sustainability Desk. He focuses on issues of climate change, conservation, energy and environmental justice.

Prior to joining Marketplace in April 2016, Jed was an environment reporter at KPCC public radio in Pasadena. Before that, he lived in New York, and learned to report at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Also while in New York, he worked on the HBO documentary "Birders: The Central Park Effect" and was a producer for WNYC’s "The Takeaway." Before that, he lived in Falls Church, Virginia, and San Diego — places where he tried to begin his radio career (and failed).

At one point in time, Jed lived in Chicago, where he was a laboratory manager and ruined the experiments of stressed-out grad students.

He was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio.
