  • Wilson Liévano

    Wilson Liévano is a Knight Fellow at Stanford University. He first dreamed of becoming a journalist at age 14, when he discovered the work of a man considered the father of investigative reporting in Colombia. Still, in a country rife with murderous drug cartels, it was not considered a safe or particularly high-end profession. But the courage of journalists in Colombia inspired him. After graduating in 2002 from the Universidad Externado de Colombia, he freelanced then interned with CNN en Español in Atlanta. In 2004, Liévano earned a master’s in journalism from Boston University. The following year, he took a translating/editing job at The Wall Street Journal Americas that set him on an unexpected career path. Noting that the edition’s website had few stories — and few readers — he took on the job of improving it. The revamped site was an instant success and readership jumped exponentially. In 2008, he was named Editions Coordinator for Multimedia.
