Jim Teeple returned to Miami as Bureau Chief in 2004, after working as VOA's New Delhi correspondent since early 1999.

While in India, Jim was responsible for news coverage in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the Maldives. He spent a lot of time on the road, covering developments in Indian-administered Kashmir, the ongoing civil war in Sri Lanka and other "breaking news" in South Asia.

Jim's specialty is putting together long reports about how "ordinary people," are dealing with the rapid changes.

Jim lives in Miami where when he has some free time, he enjoys tennis, swimming and exploring the city's many bookstores and historic sites. He enjoys hearing from listeners and if he has time, will try to respond to any questions.
