Alison Fitzgerald

Managing Editor, Politics and Finance  The Center for Public Integrity

Alison Fitzgerald is managing editor in charge of politics, finance and broadband coverage. She joined the Center in April 2013 to lead its financial and business reporting. Her first major project, "After the Meltdown" was honored with the 2013 George Polk Award. She previously spent more than a decade at Bloomberg News, where she wrote about the convergence of politics, government and economics. Her coverage of the 2008 financial crisis and ensuing government bailout won her several awards, including the 2009 George Polk Award, the Sidney Hillman Prize for social justice reporting, and the "Best of the Best" from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. Prior to joining Bloomberg, she worked at The Associated Press in Boston and New York, the Palm Beach Post, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a master’s degree from Northwestern University. She is co-author of In Too Deep: BP and the Drilling Race that Took it Down, an examination of BP’s troubled safety history and corporate culture that lead, almost inevitably, to the 2010 disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
