In Conversation with Dean Baquet

Date to be announced

Dean Baquet, who served as executive editor of The New York Times for eight years until June 2022, will join inewsource for a special event at Rancho Valencia hosted by Irwin and Joan Jacobs.

This exclusive event is for Spotlight Club members supporting inewsource at $2,500 and more annually.

During Baquet’s time as executive editor, the NYT newsroom won 18 Pulitzer Prizes. He now leads a new local investigative journalism fellowship program at The Times, which aims to counter a “crisis in local news” by cultivating watchdog reporting.

Baquet got his start in local newsrooms in his hometown of New Orleans and at The Chicago Tribune, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative work that uncovered corruption in City Council committee spending. He also served as Editor at the Los Angeles Times.
