Kathleen McGrory - Deputy Investigations Editor

Deputy Investigations Editor

I’m the deputy investigations editor at the Tampa Bay Times. I write and edit stories that shed light on wrongdoing. My work has exposed a previously unreported spike in the number of child gun injuries, traced the origins of a fatal power-plant accident and uncovered mistakes at a prestigious children’s hospital. I started my career at the Miami Herald, where I covered crime, schools, Miami City Hall and state government. (Sometimes, the four overlapped.) Before that, I studied at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. I live in St. Petersburg with my husband, who is also an editor at the paper, and our rescue beagle Susan.
