Torigoe Shuntaro is editor-in-chief of OhmyNews Japan. Torigoe is a 41-year veteran of journalism well known among his peers and to the public for his impartial reporting.

He has high expectations for OhmyNews Japan and wants to accomplish his next career goal in citizen participatory journalism. He and his team will work to develop a news Web site with the unique content and characteristics of OhmyNews.

Torigoe got his start as a reporter with the Mainichi Daily News in 1965. Over the years he has been a foreign correspondent, chief editor of a weekly magazine and a TV news anchor. As a frontline reporter, Torigoe's outgoing personality and tireless reporting soon began earning him a sterling reputation.

As host of "The Scoop," a program on TV Ashahi, Torigoe broadened his reporting through investigation and discussion of events and issues, often delving into the deep background of stories.

He currently appears on "Super Morning," a program of TV Ashahi that deals with current issues, where he provides his take on daily news events. He has been actively engaged in cultural activities on the Internet, managing the regular columns section of an Internet news Web site since 2000.

Torigoe's appointment has accelerated the establishment of OhmyNews Japan, which was initially launched on Feb. 22 through a joint project of OhmyNews and Softbank, a leading IT company in Japan.

The Japanese edition of OhmyNews is the first step in the internationalization of its news services.
