Aviation Week & Space Technology

Joseph C. Anselmo became Editor-in-Chief of Aviation Week & Space Technology in 2013, leading a team of more than two dozen aerospace journalists in the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific.  


Anselmo has 27 years of experience as a Washington, D.C.-based editor and reporter, covering a wide array of business, political, military, space and technology issues at Aviation Week, Congressional Quarterly and the Washington Post Co. 


Under his leadership, Aviation Week has won numerous accolades for its in-depth reporting and deep dives into aerospace technology, including six Jesse H. Neal Journalism Awards and numerous Aerospace Media Awards.


In 2015, Anselmo helped spearhead a digital initiative that provides subscribers with fresh content every day via mobile phones, tablets or desktop computers. To mark Aviation Week's 100th anniversary in 2016, the publication's entire archive -- more than 440,000 pages of covers, articles and advertisements -- was digitzed into a searchable online archive.


During his reporting career, Anselmo won three Aerospace Journalist of the Year awards. A graduate of Ohio University, he was elected three times to the National Press Club’s Board of Governors, including one term as board chairman.
