Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
He works in the Capitol Bureau at the NC General Assembly. Jeff started at WUNC as the Greensboro Bureau Chief, in September of 2011. He has reported on a range of topics, including higher education, the military, federal courts, politics, coal ash, aviation, craft beer, opiate addiction and college athletics.
His work has been heard on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, Marketplace, Here & Now, 1A and the BBC. His work has been recognized with seven regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, and for the last three years he has been named Radio Reporter of the Year by the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas. He loves to travel and would one day like to live and work abroad.
