early returns Powered by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Our Team


ERMikePoundMike Pound: Not long after joining the Post-Gazette in 2014, Mike Pound’s two-plus decades in journalism -- covering everything from business and government to features and weather stories -- somehow wound up in an odd professional convergence of politics, craft beer and tinkering with the internet. And he couldn’t be happier. mpound@post-gazette.com | @MikePoundPG

ERChrisPotterChris Potter: Nearly three decades after leaving home for college, Chris Potter now lives four miles from the house he grew up in -- a testament either to the charm of the South Hills or to a simple lack of ambition. While he's spent much of his career at the Pittsburgh City Paper, his work has been published in a variety of local and national publications, only some of which went out of business afterward. He has won some awards in his two-decade-long career, but really, what journalist hasn't? And yes, that is his real hair. cpotter@post-gazette.com | @CPotterPgh

ERTracieMaurielloTracie Mauriello: Washington Bureau Chief Tracie Mauriello was destined for a career in journalism. At 9 she founded the short-lived Davis Street Day, a photocopied scandal sheet -- complete with Slurpee coupons -- which she secretly stuffed into customers’ bags at her mother’s 7-Eleven store in Oakville, Connecticut. At 10, she became editor of the Polk School Post, a position she attained because of her extraordinary skill with numbers. (Her teacher picked a number and the first student to guess it got to be editor.) Since then, she has covered politics and policy at every level of government for newspapers in Connecticut, Ohio and Pennsylvania. She has worked for the Post-Gazette since 2005. tmauriello@post-gazette.com | @pgPoliTweets

ERJaniceCromptonJanice Crompton: Janice Crompton has been a reporter at the Post-Gazette for 16 years. She is a graduate of Ringgold High School and studied journalism at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. A native of Washington County, Janice has written about politics, crime, education and local news as a correspondent for the South Hills and other communities in Southwestern Pennsylvania.. jcrompton@post-gazette.com | @janicecrompton

ERLillianThomasLillian Thomas: News editor Lillian Thomas started her career writing book-jacket copy, moved to newspapers, then diverted from writing when coverage of an archaeologist made her decide to explore Mexican pyramids for a few years. Life in the present-tense suited her better, and she’s worked as a reporter and editor in Pittsburgh for nearly two decades. She loves doing 20 things at once to the tune of a police scanner. lthomas@post-gazette.com | @lthomas_pg
