In that role, he is primarily responsible for how we engage audiences in DC and beyond, supervising the EEC staff, and coordinating the work of each program's communications efforts. Editorial creates and curates widely syndicated content to support the policy goals of the programs and build the New America brand as a civic enterprise with "journalism in its DNA." Events engage the most influential people in media and policy through more than 200 live events a year, including the annual conference. Communications drives our efforts to place our experts in media, and engage our core audiences directly, while also supporting the communications needs of the organization. Fuzz is a member of the Leadership Team.

Before joining New America, Fuzz served as executive producer at Planet Forward, a media project of the Center for Innovative Media at the George Washington University, which focused on finding and curating innovative ideas in energy and sustainability. While at Planet Forward, he served as executive producer of a PBS one-hour special in April 2012. Previously, he served as director of communications for the education advocacy organization, Advance Illinois. Before that, he spent nearly 20 years at CNN. His last job was Midwest Bureau Chief, responsible for coordinating CNN coverage from the network’s bureaus in Chicago and Dallas, as well as coverage in the 14-state region. Previously, he served as the director of coverage for CNN/U.S., responsible for the oversight of the network’s national desk and newsgathering. In 2002, he was co-Executive Producer of CNN’s “Terror on Tape” series, which won a  Peabody award.
