Billy Richling

Hi! My name is Billy Richling. I am a writer and freelance journalist based in New York City. My writing has appeared in The New York Observer, PolicyMic, The Weston Forum, NYU Local, Washington Square News and The New York Times' Metropolitan Diary. I have also produced content for the radio station WNYU, where I served as News Director, and interned at WNYC, New York's NPR affiliate.

My interests extend beyond journalism. I spent this summer interning at Human Rights Watch. I am also an active member of New York University's Hillel, which awarded me a Jewish Learning Fellowship this spring. On the side, I enjoy producing music; I've performed throughout the tri-state area, and at Disneyland California.

I am currently an undergraduate student at NYU, where I am pursuing a double major in Journalism and Politics.

You can find me on Twitter and LinkedIn. Contact me at billyrichling (at)
