About Me

James Arkin is a graduate student at the of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University with a focus in magazine writing and editing. He previously graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Medill with a second major in Political Science. His work has appeared in in print and online for BuzzFeed, Politico, The Washington Post, the Columbus Dispatch, the New York Daily News, the Medill News Service in Chicago and Washington, DC, Suburban News Publications in Columbus and Purplewildcats.com — the Northwestern Scout.com affiliate.

He has also worked as Political Director for the Northwestern News Network, a student television program. He previously held the role of sports producer and has anchored both sports and politics shows for the program. He has participated in live sports broadcasts for the Big Ten Network as an analyst, director, producer and cameraman.

Outside reporting, his interests include spending my time avidly following his favorite sporting teams: The Ohio State Buckeyes, the Northwestern Wildcats, and the Cleveland Indians/Cavaliers/Browns while trying to maintain some hint of optimist, which becomes increasingly difficult with each new season.
