Eric Ginsburg is the managing editor of Triad City Beat, a weekly newspaper he co-founded in 2014. He also serves as the outlet’s food & drink writer.
Eric previously worked as the associate editor and staff writer at YES! Weekly, another alternative-weekly newspaper, for three years.
He writes about everything from wolf trainers to dive bars — occasionally interviewing people such as DJ Grandmaster Flash, Melissa Harris-Perry, and Malcolm Gladwell — but he is best known for his investigative pieces and food writing. In late 2015, he worked as a freelance researcher for this front-page New York Times article about racial bias in police traffic stops and searches.
Eric has also contributed to VICE, Fusion, Our State magazine, Scalawag magazine, Indy Week, the New York Post, Creative Loafing Charlotte, and Winston-Salem Monthly, among others. He recently helped research a piece for NPR with WFDD’s Eddie Garcia.
In 2016, Eric graduated from Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies with a focus on audio. He has extensive audio experience, including a news internship with North Carolina Public Radio, WUNC, in Durham, NC. He also holds an undergraduate history degree from Guilford College, where he minored in community & justice studies.
