On Friday, I wrote about some great bylines, including Valerie Wigglesworth and Holly Hacker. The story came out of a post I wrote about a Comedy Central show that played a game of “NPR Anchor or Minor Star Wars Character,” last week. Throughout the weekend, I heard even more great names and thought it was time for another post.
Here they are:
Frank Bi is a news developer at PBS NewsHour. Because of the way Newshour configures its emails, well, see for yourself.
Clifford Fewel left this comment with the story. Like Holly Hacker who works with data, Fewel has also been well-cast.
“We are self-syndicated automotive writers Clifford and Mary Fewel (cq), aka AutoCouple. People ask us what our REAL last name is. Fewel is Welsh and before Ellis Island was spelled Fewyll and pronounced FEH-weck.”
Jake New, a reporter for Inside Higher Ed, is also in the right business.

Here’s a journalist with a first and last name that would make this list on their own.

Taft Wireback is a reporter at the (Greensboro, North Carolina) News & Record. And here’s another great one.

Xerxes Wilson is a reporter for The Courier in Houma, Louisiana. He told me in an email that he goes by Lex but answers to both.
We also heard about some great names on Facebook, where the web editor of South Jersey Times online, Jim Six, told us “I had a good run with Jim Six.”
And finally, because he really does have a great name (and he’s Gary Vosot), I’m including Vosot here, too. I wrote about Vosot and what’s behind that name back in April.
