Aaron Glantz is a senior reporter at Reveal who produces public interest journalism with impact. His reporting has sparked more than a dozen Congressional hearings, a raft of federal legislation and led to criminal probes by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission. Because of his reporting, 500,000 fewer U.S. military veterans face long waits for disability compensation, while 100,000 fewer veterans are prescribed highly addictive narcotics by the government. He is also the author of three books, most recently “The War Comes Home: Washington’s Battle Against America’s Veterans.” Glantz has reported across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. His work has appeared in a broad range of media outlets, including The New York Times, NBC News, ABC News and the PBS NewsHour, where his work has twice been nominated for a national Emmy Award. Awards include a George Foster Peabody Award, Sigma Delta Chi Award and Online News Association award. Fellowships include the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University, the DART Center Ochberg Fellowship at Columbia University and the Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism at the Carter Center. He is based in Reveal’s Emeryville, California office.
