Winny de Jong

Data journalist Winny de Jong (1988) works at the Dutch public news broadcast NOS. She is recognised as an insightful and original voice on data-driven journalism.

Winny is also the publisher of a popular, weekly e-mail newsletter on all things data journalism called Learn more at or by following her on Twitter.
