Jeh Johson in the control room at WBGO

Jeh Johnson

Host, All Things Soul

All Things Soul with Jeh Johnson is a part of WBGO's Rhythm and Song Weekend programming lineup, which includes the highly popular program Rhythm Revue with Felix Hernandez, as well as archival programs like Portraits in Blue and Blues Break. It's a classic mix of R&B, jazz, blues, and more. Also hear from special guests who will join Jeh to talk about their affinity for this music we all love. Johnson works hard to dig through WBGO’s music archive and his own music library in order to create the playlists for the show. “I try to build the music around the theme of the interviews,” he told The Daily News, adding that he also seeks to provide something “newsworthy and significant for folks.”

A former member of WBGO’s Board of Trustees, Johnson has had an impressive career in public service. Johnson is a 2021 recipient of The American Lawyer’s Lifetime Achievement Award, as “[a]n American statesman [who] has devoted his career to the public interest.” In public life, he served as Secretary of Homeland Security (2013-2017), General Counsel of the Department of Defense (2009-2012), General Counsel of the Department of the Air Force (1998-2001) and as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (1989-1991). In private law practice, Johnson has been an experienced litigator and trial lawyer, and a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers. Since returning to the Paul, Weiss law firm in 2017, Johnson is co-head of the firm's Cybersecurity & Data Protection practice, and advises high-tech companies, private equity firms and government contractors on the legal aspects of cybersecurity, national security, data privacy, government relations, crisis management, high-stakes litigation and regulatory matters. Johnson is currently a member of the board of directors of Lockheed Martin and U.S. Steel and is a trustee of Columbia University. In private life, Johnson is also a regular commentator on national issues on NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, PBS, FOX, FOX Business, Bloomberg TV and numerous other outlets, and he has published op-eds in the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Hill, Lawfare and Bloomberg Law.
