Featured journalist: Joanna Clay
Today is the day that the newly minted Los Angeles Register begins circulation, so what better day to feature a journalist there? Meet Joanna Clay, an LA Register reporter covering Malibu/Santa Monica but who is also comfortable covering from education to social issues to public safety.
Be sure to stop by her Muck Rack portfolio. Clay has already received a Los Angeles Times Editorial Award for her newswriting, and you'll find more evidentiary support for her excellent hyperlocal work under headlines such as "South County high schools scramble to combat rise in heroin abuse" and "Laguna Canyon's future at a crossroads."
