David DeKok ’75

David DeKok ’75 recently had his first bylined
stories in the New York Times in a long journalism
career. Based in Harrisburg, Pennslvania, he
covered the extradition hearing in the Poconos
for Bryan Kohberger, accused killer of four
Idaho college students, and the aftermath of the
deadly chocolate factory gas explosion in West
Reading, Pennslvania. The Times recruited him
last summer for its corps of “stringers,” or parttime
freelance reporters.
