I began my journalism career as a teenager at the Detroit Free Press. From the moment I walked into the building I knew that writing and reporting the news was what I was meant to do. The smell of ink and the adrenaline of deadlines took me from The Kansas City Star to The Washington Times to Slam Magazine, where I was a senior writer.
My work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Crain's Detroit Business, Politics Magazine, Radius Magazine, USA Today, Newsday, The Washington Post and on web sites ranging from MSNBC to NBC Sports to Black America Web, where I am a national columnist.
You can also hear me on WVON AM 1690’s “The Zack Burgess Report” out of Chicago.
Since 2009, I have served as the Assignments Editor for EDGE Magazine. A Howard University graduate (BA Journalism), I have covered politics, culture, and current events...and every major sporting event except for the Super Bowl and the Olympics.
Now, after almost three decades, I am back in Motor City.
Hey...who says you can’t go home again?
