Khorri Atkinson
News Reporter
Arlington, VA
Khorri Atkinson is a newsdesk reporter at Axios in Washington, D.C. where he covers breaking news, national politics and the voting rights beat. He was born and raised in Jamaica, West Indies.

M.A. Journalism; CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 2016
B.A. Journalism; York College, at the City University of New York, 2015

Prior to joining Axios in 2017, Atkinson worked at The New York Times as a James Reston Reporting Fellow. His work has also been published in outlets including POLITICO, The Texas Tribune,, and the New York Amsterdam News — one the country’s oldest continuously-published black newspaper. Atkinson is an alum of The New York Times Student Journalism Institute and the Chips Quinn Scholars program.

Related Experience:
Atkinson joined NABJ in 2011 and has since then been an active member. He served on the board as national student representative in 2013-15, and his signature accomplishment was establishing the ‘NABJ Salute to Excellence in Collegiate Journalism Awards’ program to recognize work produced by student members across the country.

On the local level, Atkinson served as president of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism Association of Black Journalists and founding president of the CUNY York College Association of Black Journalists. He had also coordinated a college media workshop for summer interns and students at the New York NABJ chapter.

NABJ is the model for organizations devoted to improving newsroom diversity. But to continue that legacy and remain relevant in this fast- changing industry, the board must have effective young leadership for inclusiveness and to be reflective of its membership. As a product of NABJ, I’m ready to serve.

Main priorities: Revise the Operating Procedures to reflect an industry standard document; engage young members and identify areas where they can contribute their skills; improve existing programs and establish a footprint in the Caribbean diaspora to bolster NABJ’s presence outside the U.S.

I hope to earn your support.
