Jonathan Green has been a working journalist since the late 1970s.

Jonathan left The Age in 2006 to work for the first time online as editor of Crikey. After three years there and having gained a nodding familiarity with the ways of the internet, he at last found his way to the ABC as foundation editor of ABC Online’s The Drum. He presents Sunday Extra and fills in on RN Drive.
