C.W. Anderson is Assistant Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island (City University of New York), and director of research at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

His book, Rebuilding the News: Metropolitan Journalism in the Digital Age, was published in January 2013 by Temple University Press. His current research traces the use of “documents” and “data” in journalism from the beginning of the 20th century to the present, in an attempt to flesh out a cultural history of the idea of the journalistic “report.”

At CUNY, Anderson teaches classes in both journalism and media studies.
