Jerusalem Bureau Chief
Karl Vick was named TIME’s Jerusalem bureau chief in May 2010.
He joined TIME from the Washington Post, where from 1998 to 2007 he was posted overseas. He was bureau chief in Nairobi and Istanbul, with extended stays in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iran and Iraq, where for a time he ran the Post’s Baghdad bureau.
In 2001, he was among a team of journalists from the Washington Post named as finalists for the Pulitzer Prize in Public Service for a series of articles that changed global perceptions about responsibility for caring for Africans infected with AIDS.
Most recently, for TIME, Vick has reported on changes in Israeli society, the fortunes of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and the continuing protests in the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan.
A Minnesota native, Vick began his career in journalism at the Grant County (Wis.) Herald Independent. He was a television critic at the Minneapolis
Star and worked at the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times before joining the Post.
