About Jonathan Donley
DONLEY, JON is founding editor of NOLA.com, the web affiliate of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

He also directed NOLA's expansion of forums, blogs and other features to guide search and rescue efforts, reunite scattered hurricane victims and facilitate grass-roots reporting and communication. Jon was part of the team awarded the 2006 Pulitzers for public service and breaking news. NOLA.com also received the first Knight Foundation Online Journalism Award for Public Service in 2006.
