Award-winning journalists Scott Fisher, Candy Woodall and J.D. Prose have been chosen to form a state capitol bureau to serve Gannett’s 14 Pennsylvania properties and the USA TODAY NETWORK’s Atlantic Region.
Fisher will serve as bureau editor and will continue his news duties for the York Daily Record. Woodall, an investigative reporter for the York paper, will team with Prose, a longtime government and politics reporter for the Beaver County Times, to cover the capitol, statewide issues and supplement coverage for all of Gannett’s Pennsylvania publications.
“Our group covers Pennsylvania like no other, literally from corner to corner,” USA Today Network Pennsylvania Editor Shane Fitzgerald said in announcing the team. “We have significant presence outside the population centers but also are close enough to those centers that we truly can make a big impact.
