Jesse Underwood[2] McKinley (born 1970) is an American journalist who is a reporter for The New York Times in Albany, NY. Previously he was the San Francisco bureau chief for the paper and an arts reporter, covering Broadway and theater, also at the Times.[1]


McKinley is a son of James C. McKinley and Mary Ann McKinley.[citation needed] James C. McKinley, Jr., one of his brothers, is a courts reporter for the Metro desk of the Times.[1]


In 1993, Mckinley began working for the New York Times City section. Until 1996, he handled the F.Y.I column where readers would ask local trivia questions and McKinley would answer them. In 1998, The New York Times assigned him to working on the theater beat where he worked for 8 years establishing himself credibility and a strong reputation specifically in the New York City theater scene. McKinley was then offered, by The New York Times, a full-time position as bureau chief in San Francisco in 2006.[1] In 2011, he worked as a features writer for the paper, and in 2013, began working in the Albany bureau.
