Susan White was the first senior editor hired by the investigative news organization ProPublica where she worked from 2008 until 2011. She was an editor on the project that brought ProPublica its first Pulitzer Prize in 2010, about a New Orleans hospital stranded by flooding during Hurricane Katrina. She also edited ProPublica’s coverage of natural gas drilling, which won a George Polk Award and other national honors.
Before joining ProPublica White spent 14 years at The San Diego Union-Tribune, where she was an editor on the Pulitzer Prize-winning reports that sent former U.S. Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham to prison. She also edited a project on immigration that was a 2004 Pulitzer finalist. At the Union-Tribune, White was the newspaper’s writing coach, enterprise editor and U.S.-Mexico border editor.
