Announcement from Director of Video Micah Gelman and Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt:
We are delighted to announce Josh Carroll has joined The Post full-time as a producer/editor with the Opinions video team.
Josh has been embedded with the team since February, balancing newsy Editorial Board and columnist takes with longer-form perspectives. He is a thoughtful, creative and versatile producer, shooter and editor who, in the last few months, has traveled to Boston to follow queer activist Evan Greer as she grappled with the corporatization of Pride, spent a hot weekend in Columbia, S.C., with an undecided voter experiencing her first Democratic state convention, and filmed and edited a complex Turkish-language interview with Jamal Khashoggi’s fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, detailing their last moments together before his murder.
Before joining The Post, Josh directed Millennium Stage livestreams at the Kennedy Center and worked on features for social media, including producing and shooting a profile of revered Afro-Cuban artist Manuel Mendive.
Josh has a degree in Film and Television from Boston University. During his last semester there, he interned at Fenway Park, running the wireless camera during games. He spent several years with the Red Sox and later with the Los Angeles Dodgers, producing pieces for the video board and short features for broadcast, as well as “helping” the Red Sox win the World Series in 2007.
Growing up in Massachusetts, Josh’s first job was trying to talk customers out of renting pan-and-scan-format VHS tapes (look it up) at a Blockbuster-knockoff video store. His cats have to listen while he tries to teach himself violin off of YouTube. Pity them.
Please join us in welcoming Josh to The Post.
