Professor of Practice
Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication


As Executive Director of Digital Media & Strategic Communication, EOSS, Jason Manning directs media, messaging, and content creation that serves ASU's 80,000 students, as well as thousands of future students.

He also oversees ASU Student Media and ASU Student Creative Services, where the next generation of media professionals receive hands-on, real-world training.

As a Professor of Practice in ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, Manning teaches courses focused on digital technology and depth reporting. He created and taught the Cronkite School's first Web and social analytics course. He also created and taught the freshman seminar "Technology & Journalism," which introduced students to the revolutionary changes in the profession over the last 25 years.

As a part of Cronkite's Borderlands team, Manning has co-led student reporting projects in Central and Southern Mexico; the Dominican Republic; Puerto Rico; Canada; and Nicaragua.

He has trained professional journalists in numerous settings, in places as varied as the Dominican Republic and Pakistan.

Manning also serves as publisher of ASU's award-winning student newspaper, The State Press, which shifted from daily print to all-digital in 2014 -- the first major college newspaper to do so.

Prior to his service at ASU, Manning worked as a journalist for The Washington Post, PBS NewsHour, and U.S. News & World Report.
