Virginia Ellis

Virginia Ellis, currently reporting for the LA Times, has been nailing the tough stories on a beat that is known as one of the most grueling in journalism: state government. In statehouses from Florida to Texas to California, she has been known for a journalistic style that is kind, sympathetic, decent, and straight-forward–and for the ne’er-do-well, deceptively deadly. Her coverage earned her the prestigious Polk Award and USC Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting. She has also been recognized as a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
