Justin Ho

Reporter

SHORT BIO

I'm a finance reporter.

What was your first job?

Grocery bagger.

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

In radio, you get a lot of people making pledge drive jokes, or jokes about Ira Glass, or “Prairie Home Companion.” People don’t realize that there are plenty of other jokes to make about public radio. Like making fun of bumper music, or the fact that we still use landlines, or the phrase “sustaining member.” Lot of comedic potential right there. It’s very hard dealing with this — I have to tell people this stuff all the time.

In your next life, what would your career be?

I’d stay in radio, probably. Best not to second-guess these things. Who knows what would happen if I became, like, a real estate agent or something. Might be happier, might not be.

What is something that everyone should own, no matter how much it costs?
