Reporter bio

Jeff Seldin

Jeff works out of VOA’s Washington headquarters covering a wide variety of subjects, from the nature of the growing terror threat in Northern Africa and the uncertain future for the fabled city of Timbuktu to China’s crackdown on Tibet and the struggle over immigration reform in the United States.
 
While much of his work focuses on the serious, Jeff also seeks out the lighter side of life, seeking out the news stories that leave you with a smile.
 
Before coming to VOA, Jeff worked in Washington, D.C. covering government and a variety of business and consumer issues, following stops in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware, home to half of the U.S. Fortune 500 companies.  His travels have taken him across much of Europe and parts of North Africa and the Middle East, where he reported on the peace process and also worked on an archaeological dig.
 
A native New Yorker, Jeff is also an avid sports fan, playing whatever sport he can whenever he can while rooting for baseball’s New York Yankees.
