Will Huntsberry

Will Huntsberry is an assistant producer in NPR's elections unit, where he produced a piece about Don Gonyea's favorite campaign trail playlists, reported on the one place in Washington where former House Speaker John Boehner could feel like "a regular guy," and other stories that get beneath the surface of American politics.

He came to NPR in 2014 as Kroc Fellow, after graduating from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Since joining NPR, he has worked on the education desk, reported at KQED in San Francisco, and was part of the team that covered the 2015 church massacre in Charleston, S.C.

Previously, he worked for the Wall Street Journal and covered Raleigh, N.C. for a variety of news outlets.

The BBC nature series Planet Earth II doesn't debut on BBC America until Saturday, but one of its scenes has already been viewed online more than 9 million times. The two-minute clip shows a baby iguana running for its life through a pit of hungry snakes. (Does he make it? Watch the clip below to find out ...)
