My name is David Weingrad and I am a former editor for the Long Island Herald, a weekly print newspaper in Long Island, NY, which covers the island's south shore. The LI Herald is a chain of community newspapers, with an online presence, and I oversee one of the newspapers.
I currently am continuing my journalism career as a freelance reporter for the Washington Post and the Long Island Herald.
As an editor and reporter for several years, I have written hundreds of stories on large number of topics, including crime, politics, sports, entertainment, celebrities, schools and feature stories. My work has earned me several awards from the New York Press Association and the Press Club of Long Island.
