Steve Lopez

Steve Lopez was singled out in 2002 by Washington Post writer Howard Kurtz as a surviving example of the vanishing, big-city, hard-edged, witty metro columnist. Mixing hilarious trademark jabs at deserving politicians with superb storytelling, Lopez has brought urban-advocacy traditions to Los Angeles. His column explored subjects as varied as LA’s dreadful traffic jams and his own early stirrings of religious awakening. He has been honored with many national journalism awards for column writing and magazine reporting.
