About Peter King
KING, PETER is a copy editor/Web specialist in the features department of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (circulation 240,000 daily, 400,000 Sunday). His responsibilities include publishing stories and photos to the Web, processing online audio and hosting podcasts. Part of his time is spent in more traditional journalism - writing headlines, editing and practicing diplomacy with reporters. He also occasionally writes about jazz, classical and pop music. King is a native of Philadelphia, where he graduated with a degree in social work from Temple University. He broke into newspapers at the Times Herald in Norristown, a Philly suburb, and then moved to Pittsburgh to work as a features writer and pop music critic at The Pittsburgh Press. When The Press folded in 1992, King returned to school full-time, studying jazz and Brazilian guitar at Duquesne University, where he earned a master's in music. He joined the Post-Gazette in 1994. In his free time, Peter writes songs, sings and plays guitar in the Pittsburgh area. His latest CD is called "The Road to Ubatuba" (that's a town in Brazil you should ask him about sometime).
