Dustin Jones is a reporter for NPR's digital news desk. He mainly covers breaking news, but enjoys working on long-form narrative pieces.
Jones got his start at NPR in September 2020 as the organization's first intern through a partnership with Military Veterans in Journalism. He interned as a producer for All Things Considered on the weekends, and then as a reporter for the Newsdesk.
He kickstarted his journalism career as a local reporter in Southwest Montana, just outside of Yellowstone National Park. From there he went on to study at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism where he focused on documentary production and book publication.
Jones served four years in the Marine Corps with tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. The New Hampshire native has lived all over the country, but currently resides in Southern California.
When Jones isn't writing for NPR, he is reporting for his local newspaper and freelancing as a video producer for the Military Times. Outside of work, he enjoys surfing, snowboarding and tearing up the dancefloor, sometimes all in the same day.
