Eric Bond, a writer and multimedia journalist, has owned and operated the Takoma Voice since 1994. Bond is committed to providing a publication that engages the residents of Takoma Park with relevant and accurate news, features, and profiles. Democracy requires independent, factual reporting—and it has never been more necessary than in this age of misinformation and media fragmentation. Along with running the online Voice, Bond hosts Talk of Takoma a weekly magazine show on Takoma Radio.
