Infrastructure Reporter Nick Judin began his career in journalism at the Jackson Free Press in 2019, coming on as State Reporter to cover the 2020 legislative session. That posting quickly gave way to a year leading the JFP’s COVID-19 coverage. Nick’s reports from the frontline of coronavirus have repeatedly made national headlines, as he has asked hard questions of state leadership and done critical interviews with the state’s top public-health experts.
At the same time, Nick followed the intricacies of the longest legislative session in modern Mississippi history. His explanatory reporting continues to provide Mississippians with accurate information at every stage of the pandemic. Nick grew up in Jackson, graduated from the University of Mississippi, and lives with his wife Emily.
