Aaron Moselle/WHYY

Aaron Moselle is a general assignment reporter for NewsWorks, filing stories for both web and radio.
While you can find him at the courthouse or a school funding rally, he also spends a good chunk of his time writing about issues in Northwest Philadelphia, where he was born and raised. (Yes. Mount Airy is part of the city.)
Before arriving at WHYY in 2010, Aaron was a freelance writer for a collection of community newspapers and alternative weeklies.
He still can't get over the fact that he can walk to so many sights and sounds from his home base in South Philly.
