David Thornton

Digital Editor

David Thornton joined Federal News Radio as a digital editor in February 2016, shortly after earning his B.A. in English (with a concentration in journalism) from Old Dominion University. While at ODU, David served as both news editor and copy editor for the student newspaper, The Mace and Crown, where he focused his coverage on crime, university policy and student voting.

Prior to pursuing a career in journalism, David spent 13 years as a professional cook. As a result, he has no feeling in his fingertips and a tendency to interpret the world in terms of food.
