what people are saying about us

"Eric is by far the best recruitment specialist I have ever worked with while at NPR. His deep knowledge of the skills required, his instinct for true talent and a great fit, and his tireless work to surface the very best candidates - these qualities combined make for a hiring experience which is as enjoyable and efficient as it is successful. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

"Eric Wee is one of a kind. He approaches search like a great journalist. He is tenacious, endlessly curious and fully reports the story-getting valuable leads and finding candidates we never would have met without him. In one year, he has helped transform our organization, adding extraordinary colleagues to our editorial and leadership ranks."

"Eric Wee, JournalismNext and Media Next Talent are helping public media and the journalism industry improve the way we give voice to all people. At KQED we have a small recruiting team and working with Eric gave us a force multiplier that allowed us to build an incredibly deep pool of unexpected and highly-skilled journalists for a high-profile job. Now I often refer others to Eric when they are looking to hire for mission critical jobs."

Ethan Toven-Lindsey, Executive Editor, News-KQED San Francisco

“Eric Wee and the team at Media Next Talent helped me identify exactly the right person to fill a unique editorial role within my firm. They took the time to understand our business and specific personnel needs, and presented a diverse and extraordinarily talented pool of candidates to choose from. I couldn’t be more pleased with the result.”

Jonah Seiger, CEO, Connections Media LLC

 "During my time as Vice President of Talent Acquisition and Vice President of Diversity for GANNETT and TEGNA, I had the opportunity to utilize JournalismNext for recruiting diverse journalism talent. The job site is the most robust and comprehensive source in the industry for sourcing journalists of color. For journalists, it is a job site for posting your resume, as JournalismNext is a go to site for employers searching for diverse journalists. For employers, the site offers opportunities to post open positions and target journalists who have expressed in interest in finding employment or simply looking to change jobs. Eric Wee is a face that you will see at every journalism convention, working the crowd and networking with employers and seeking ways to assist journalists and employers to make employment connections. I can say that Eric is a person of high integrity and I enjoyed working with him and appreciated the broad base of diverse talent placed on JournalismNext."

Virgil Smith, Former Vice-President Talent Acquisition and Diversity, Gannett Co, Inc

"I routinely refer news leaders to Eric Wee and Journalismnext.com. He has worked hard through the years to build a broad, diverse pool of journalists. I count on the fact that his career as a respected, professional reporter and editor have helped him to develop the eye for talent that makes a service like this valuable."


Keith Woods, National Public Radio (NPR) Former Vice President for Diversity in News and Operations, Current Chief Diversity Officer


"At OPB we have a small recruiting/HR team. By engaging Eric Wee, JournalismNext and Media Next Talent on targeted national recruitments, we have been able to expand our recruiting efforts and have conversations with candidates who otherwise may not have considered OPB as a potential employer or relocating to the Portland, Oregon area. Eric has been able to showcase our growth, innovation and potential in ways that have magnified our efforts."
