About Jason Kandel
I’m an award-winning journalist based in Los Angeles. I’ve worked as an online editor at a public radio station and the website of the LA Daily News. I’ve reported about crime and covered local city government. I’ve written about a commercial plane crash, a train wreck, shootings, stabbings and assorted mayhem. I’ve written profiles about L.A.’s celebrity chief, a sumo wrestler cop and a homicide detective solving a double murder. I wrote about a city councilwoman who was busted in a gang, drug and gun sting in Burbank and uncovered the tale of a cop who led a double life, patrolling South L.A. by day and dealing Ecstasy from his home at night. After a while, my law enforcement contacts began tipping me off to Russian and Armenian organized crime groups committing murders and fraud in the suburbs of L.A. My work caught the attention of the U.S. State Department who recruited me as part of a U.S. Speakers and Specialists grant program to talk to journalists in Albania and Colombia about crime and news in the United States.
