Manager Media and Public Relations
Martin Jordan has been working as a media spokesman for BaselArea.swiss since February 2019. He previously worked for five years in the same position at the University Hospital of Basel. Before switching to corporate communications, he devoted many years to journalism. His career was defined by his work for SRG, where he held various positions at Radio SRF. His main editorial office was the Regionaljournal Basel, where he was employed as a moderator, reporter and editor.
In the meantime, he gave up his permanent position as an SRF editor in order to spend a winter season as a ski instructor before going abroad for four years. From 2001 to 2005, he worked as a foreign correspondent in the reporting areas of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for the Frankfurter Rundschau, the Tagesspiegel, the Stuttgarter Zeitung, the Basler Zeitung and Radio SRF.
Martin Jordan studied Sociology, German Linguistics and Folklore at the University of Basel. During his studies, which he completed with a licentiate (equivalent of an MA degree) in 1992, he gained his first experience in journalism as a freelancer for various media companies in Basel.
