William Bunch is the senior writer for the Philadelphia Daily News and its former political writer. Will's been covering presidential campaigns and conventions all the way back to Jesse Jackson's historic 1984 bid. Working for the spunky Philly paper that GQ once called "arguably the best tabloid in America," he's gained national recognition for his scoops on the mysteries of 9/11, the crash of Flight 93, the war in Iraq and the beheading of Nick Berg.

Before coming to Philadelphia, Will was a key member of the New York Newsday team that won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for spot news reporting. His magazine articles have appeared in a number of national and regional publications, including the New York Times Magazine, and he is a contributing editor at his alma mater's Brown Alumni Magazine.

Will is also the author of the critically praised 1994 book "Jukebox America: Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox." He lives in Philadelphia, has two children, an 11-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son, and when he's not dissecting politics he's probably either still searching for Philly's best jukebox or brooding over the Phillies or 76ers.
