Ted Balaker is a writer and producer at Reason.tv where he creates documentary shorts, Drew Carey Project pieces, and comedic videos.
In 2008, Reason.tv received the Templeton Freedom Award for innovative media, and Business Week recognized Balaker’s “Where’s My Bailout” video as among the best of bailout humor. Balaker’s work has been cited or featured by Salon.com, The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, and on the 20/20 John Stossel special “Bailouts and Bull,” a joint project between ABC News and Reason.tv.
Balaker is also a policy analyst at Reason Foundation where he has authored studies on urban policy and workplace issues, such as offshore outsourcing and telecommuting. His work has appeared in dozens of publications, including Investor’s Business Daily, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and Washington Post. He has appeared on many radio and television programs, including ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and CNBC’s On the Money.
Balaker is co-author (with Sam Staley) of the book The Road More Traveled (Rowman & Littlefield, 2006), which urban historian Joel Kotkin suggests “should be required reading, not only for planners and their students, but for anyone who loves cities and wants them to thrive.”
Prior to joining Reason, Balaker spent five years as a producer at ABC Network News.
Balaker graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, Irvine with degrees in political science and English.
