Chris Satullo is WHYY's vice president of news and civic dialogue. Before coming to WHYY in 2008, he was editorial page editor and columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer. In 2007, he co-founded the Penn Project for Civic Engagement, which convenes forums to connect citizen concerns to journalism and politics. Since 1994, he's written the Centre Square column, which tries to prove that centrists aren't wimps. One time Rush Limbaugh read a Centre Square on the air - not approvingly - which proved that sometimes centrists need a suit of armor. Satullo loves the Phillies almost as much as he does the Indians of his hometown, Cleveland. He spends way too much time on sporcle.com.
