Art Chimes

Art Chimes is a journalist at the Voice of America, with more than 25 years at the U.S. international broadcasting service.

Since 2004 he has been the producer and host of Our World, a weekly radio program on science, technology, health, and the environment.

Art was the VOA correspondent in Jerusalem in the early ’90s. Later he was based in Prague, reporting on stories in Eastern and Central Europe. His VOA career has also included editing web content and long-form news broadcasts, as well as science and economics reporting.

He has covered stories ranging from ethnic cleansing in the Balkans to the Exxon Valdez oil spill to the Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

Art claims to be a technology enthusiast without being too geeky about it. He bought his first computer around 1983 (a Timex Sinclair 1000 with 2k memory), and built his first PC a few years later. He successfully programmed a VCR on his first try.

Art is a native of New Jersey. He attended the same fine public high school as one of this year’s Nobel laureates. He holds degrees from New York University (BA) and the University of Georgia (JD).
