Lane DeGregory

Enterprise reporter, Tampa Bay Times

Lane DeGregory is a listener, a writer, a teacher. She loves true stories, intimate details and big ideas. She interviews strangers and writes about real people, some famous, but mostly folks struggling in the shadows.

In 30 years, she has shared more than 3,000 stories in newspapers and magazines: A feral child who gets adopted, an old man determined to end his own life, a young girl whose dad dropped her off a bridge.

She has won dozens of national awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing.
