Here are some testimonials about me and my work.

Justin Maiman

“Everyone should know four things about Arun: he’s a storyteller at heart, he’s entrepreneurial as all get out, his multimedia toolset is immense, and he plays a mean ukulele.”

—JUSTIN MAIMAN, president and managing director, Cochrane Media


“Storyteller at heart”

“Arun is one of the most observant, conscientious, and ethics-driven journalists I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. If you want any news topic—from politics to crime to human interest—covered carefully, thoroughly, and without bias, he’s your guy. What’s more, he’s extremely passionate and compassionate, throwing his all and then some into any project he sets his mind to. From completing multiple marathons to providing well-considered career advice to his journalist peers, Arun epitomizes both the coach and teammate you’d be lucky to have on your side.”

—AMY ROBERTS, managing editor, Reviewed, and teammate, Hellgate Road Runners

“Passionate and compassionate”

“Arun is one of the few true journalists left in the industry. Arun is a highly skilled writer and web producer but what makes him stand out from the rest is his attention to detail, accuracy and facts. Over the years I have worked with Arun and it has been a privilege and honor. I turn to him for journalistic advice because I value his knowledge base and professionalism. When it comes to news in social media, Arun focuses on 100 percent accuracy of the story. He honors and respects his craft and strives to be the best at it. Bottom line Arun is a great journalist in every sense of the wordprofessional, driven, determined and a master of his craft. And I have great respect for him and his work ethic.”

—MICHAEL O’TOOLE, multimedia promotions manager, Fox 5

“Respects his craft”

“Arun Das is one of the most thoughtful people I work with at Fox 5, both as a human and in his job. Whether it’s making sure we’re using just the right word or asking follow-up questions about a story that’s sparked his interest, Arun is someone who cares about getting every last detail right and learning as much as he possibly can from every story and situation. His curiosity and his caring are above and beyond. He’s someone you can always count on, not only to do great work, but also to start a conversation that gets your mind and creative juices flowing. He’s someone I always look forward to seeing, talking with and working with!”
