Steve Myers is a Senior Editor for ProPublica's Local Reporting Network, where he works with local journalists at partner newsrooms on investigative projects.

Before joining ProPublica, he was an enterprise editor on the Nation team at USA TODAY, where he led reporters focused on extremism, criminal justice inequities and quick-turn investigations. As editor of The Lens, a nonprofit newsroom in New Orleans, he managed a dozen collaborations with local and national news outlets, including ProPublica on “Losing Ground,” an award-winning interactive project illustrating coastal land loss in Louisiana. Myers has served as managing editor of Poynter Online, taught journalism as a professional-in-residence at Texas Christian University, and reported at newspapers in Alabama, North Carolina and West Virginia.
