The Washington Sniper. Executions in Virginia's death chamber. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The East Coast Rapist. As a reporter and editor with The Washington Post for nearly two decades, Josh White has seen it all. He will share his experiences as a reporter and editor and will discuss how The Post covers major breaking news in the fast-paced Internet age.
Josh White began his reporting career at The Washington Post in 1998 covering police and courts in Prince William County. He has been the America Desk editor since January 2017, leading a team of reporters that covers news from coast to coast. He worked for six years in The Post's Manassas bureau reporting on police and courts and later the Defense Department, twice embedding with troops overseas before working as a local investigative reporter focusing on criminal proceedings. In addition, he was The Post’s education editor for four years.
