Robert Hernandez, a.k.a Web Journalist, has made a name for himself as a journalist of the Web, not just on the Web. His primary focus is exploring and developing the intersection of technology and journalism – to empower people, inform reporting and storytelling, engage community, improve distribution and, whenever possible, enhance revenue. He is an associate professor of professional practice at USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, but he’s not an academic…he’s more of a “hackademic” and specializes in “MacGyvering” Web journalism solutions. He connects dots and people. He has worked for,,, La Prensa Gráfica, among others. Hernandez is also the co-founder of #wjchat and creator of Learn Code for Journalism with Me project. He was a national board member of the Online News Association, and is a lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
