Gauthier Giacomoni at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.


Gauthier (goh-T'YAY) Giacomoni (jee-ah-koh-MOH'-nee) has been passionate about radio since his undergraduate days at WQMC, CUNY Queens College's student run station.  With an eagerness for news and story telling, Gauthier cultivated his reporting skills as a graduate student at Boston University.

Gauthier finds audio narratives most compelling. When he’s not handling breaking news, he produces stories in the style of his favorite programs: 99% InvisibleRadiolab, and This American Life.

Gauthier is a dual American and French citizen who speaks English, French, and Italian.


Anyone who's ever traveled through New York's subway system knows it's not uncommon to run into folks playing music behind an overturned hat – looking for dollars... But who are these performers, and what brings them to play in the subway? Gauthier Giacomoni explores the world of New York City's underground performers.
