Charles M. Blow (born August 11, 1970) is an American journalist, and the current visual op-ed columnist for The New York Times. Blow grew up in Gibsland, Louisiana and graduated magna cum laude from Grambling State University in the same state. He has worked as a graphics director and art director for the Times and National Geographic respectively.
In April 2008, he began publishing a column in the Times, featuring charts as a form of opinion journalism. His column originally appeared biweekly on Saturdays; in May 2009 it became a weekly feature, and since December 2012 it appears twice weekly, every Thursday and Saturday. Increasingly it is an essay in text with no chart. Blow also wrote a blog entitled "By The Numbers" for the newspaper's website which was rarely updated and essentially discontinued in 2011.
