We are pleased to announce that Deborah Anderluh has joined the Los Angeles Times as our new state editor, supervising a powerhouse enterprise team and helping shape coverage on a range of issues central to California and its influence nationally.

Most recently, she was a California-based enterprise editor for Kaiser Health News, where she managed a team of reporters covering public health, medical science, women’s reproductive health and the U.S. COVID response.
Anderluh started her career as a reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner and San Jose Mercury News, before joining the Sacramento Bee for a career that included stints as city editor, front page editor, and senior editor for enterprise and investigations.
Stories she has edited have been recognized with top honors from the Gerald Loeb Awards, the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing, the Assn. of Health Care Journalists and the California Journalism Awards, among others.
Anderluh has a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and a master’s in journalism from the University of Michigan. She started last month and is based in Sacramento.
