Eric Nelson

Former Managing Editor, Digital Content

Eric Nelson is the former managing editor of digital content at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Previously, he was the editor of the technology and transportation teams at POLITICO, and, before that, a Metro editor at The Dallas Morning News. In booming North Texas, his team focused on issues of sprawl and growth.

Eric started his journalism career at The Wichita Eagle as a copy editor and then a business editor. He graduated from the University of Kansas, where he was editor of The University Daily Kansan. And, yes, pay heed: He and his wife, Colleen, are two of the biggest Jayhawk fans you will ever meet. They enjoy running marathons and spending time with their dogs, Rock (Chalk) and Larry (short for Lawrence, Kansas).
