Derailment: Staples Grad is Voice of MTA

It’s been a tough day for Aaron Donovan, the 1994 Staples High School graduate who has been all over the airwaves today as the spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) on the Bronx, N.Y. derailment.

The native Westporter got his journalism start on Inklings, the Staples newspaper, and then went on to Georgetown where he graduated in 1998. 

A six-year stint followed at The New York Times, where one of his important responsibilities included writing the daily page 2 “Inside the Times” news summary and corrections. He joined the MTA in 2007 after studying urban planning at Columbia.

“I grew up in Greens Farms, where my parents still live,” said Donovan in between fielding press inquiries on the derailment. “Our house is next to the Metro-North tracks, and I was definitely a young rail buff before becoming an employee.”
