ARCHIVES

Once again, a government agency has enlisted a Hollywood icon to explain an intiative in the form of a public service announcement. In this case, the choice might at first seem a little counterintuitive.

Prior to joining Government Executive’s staff, Ross Gianfortune worked at The Washington Post, The Gazette Newspapers, WXRT Radio and The Columbia Missourian. He holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from University of Missouri and a master's in communications from the American University.
