Jason Miller

Executive Editor

Jason Miller has been executive editor of Federal News Network since March 2008. In that role, he manages the day-to-day editorial coverage of the multi-media news organization covering the people, policies and programs of the federal government and contractor workforces. Miller also helps oversee the long-term editorial strategy for Federal News Network.

Along with his leadership duties, Miller also covers federal technology and acquisition issues with a focus on the Office of Management and Budget, the General Services Administration and other governmentwide issues. Miller continues to host the longest-running weekly show on Federal News Network: Ask the CIO, airing on Thursdays at 10 a.m. His guests include technology leaders from Cabinet level agencies, including the Defense Department, the Homeland Security Department and many others.

He has also produced several investigative news series — including on whistleblower retaliation at the SBA, the impact of the Technology Modernization Fund and the ever changing role of agency CIOs.

In addition to his editorial responsibilities, Miller works closely with Federal News Network’s custom media department to help ensure the needs of advertising clients are met and the products are valuable to the station’s federal and industry audiences.

Miller has covered the federal government market since 1998, starting as the editor of a small business newsletter, Set-Aside Alert. He covered small business contracting, including changes and updates to the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) program, the small business disadvantaged business (SDB) program and the emergence of the women-owned small business contracting initiative.

While at Set-Aside Alert, Miller won the 1998 Small Business Advocate of the Year – Small Business Journalist award for the Washington, D.C. region.

Miller also worked at Government Computer News for seven years, starting as a reporter and moving into management as assistant managing editor for news. During his tenure, Miller was a member of several winning submissions for the Jesse H. Neal Awards, one of the longest running premier awards programs honoring business-to-business (B2B) journalism.

Before joining the world of federal journalism, Miller was a sports writer for four years. He worked at the Montgomery County and Prince George’s County Sentinel and the Manassas Journal Messenger. His sports reporting has won him awards from the Maryland, Delaware and District of Columbia Press Association and the Virginia Press Association.

Miller’s reporting has been featured in the Washington Post, on NPR and on a host of other industry-related podcasts and publications.

Miller graduated from Towson State University in Towson, Md. with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications and a minor in history. He is married with two children and lives in Arlington, Va.
