The Capitol Times in Wisconsin has hired Erin McGroarty to cover disinformation and technology.
She will start in May.
McGroarty is a graduate student pursuing a professional master’s degree in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Wisconsin.
She holds an interdisciplinary B.A. in journalism, history and political science from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She has reported on policy, government, climate change, social justice movements and the COVID-19 pandemic for Alaska’s second largest newspaper for the past three and a half years.
McGroarty has been recognized for some of the best political and health-related coverage statewide by the Alaska Press Club in 2018 and 2019 and was one of only three dozen women across the country accepted into the Reynolds Journalism Institute 2019 Women in Journalism conference.
