Introducing Sheryl Gay Stolberg, NYT Mid-Atlantic bureau chief and CD alumna

Stolberg currently serves as Mid-Atlantic bureau chief for The New York Times, reporting news, politics and features of national interest. During her 20-year career with the newspaper, she has been a science writer, Congressional Correspondent, and White House Correspondent covering the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. She has a deep interest in social issues, including race and gender, about which she has written extensively, and spent much of this past year exploring the psyche of the American electorate.

Prior to joining The Times, Stolberg worked for The Los Angeles Times, where she shared in two Pulitzer Prizes: one for coverage of the 1992 Rodney King riots and one for coverage of the 1994 Northridge earthquake. In 2009, she was an awardee of the Gerald Loeb Award for financial journalism.

Stolberg attended the University of Virginia from 1979-1983, where she joined The Cavalier Daily as a reporter. She served as executive editor for the newspaper in 1983. She is married and the proud mother of two wonderful daughters.

When asked what her involvement with The Cavalier Daily means to her, Stolberg simply says, “Easy. My education in journalism. My best friends in the world.”
