Managing Editor

Chad Snow joined the KJZZ newsroom in 2016, after two decades in the newspaper industry. He was named managing editor in 2017.

A longtime Tempe resident, he previously worked as the night editor and copy-desk chief for The Arizona Republic, editing a wide range of award-winning stories, including two series — on the 2013 Yarnell Hill wildfire and the 2011 mass shooting near Tucson — that were Pulitzer Prize finalists.

Snow, an Ohio State University graduate, began his journalism career as a small-town sports reporter before moving to Arizona and transitioning to news editing. A fierce advocate of fair, accurate and compelling journalism, he has taught editing at Arizona State University, and has lectured at the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education and other organizations on topics such as headline writing, editing on deadline, and the importance of accuracy.

In his spare time, Snow enjoys hanging out with dogs and cats, watching good movies, and reminiscing about the glory days of Cincinnati sports.
