Inside E&E News

Award-winning reporter boosts energy politics coverage

E&E News has hired Lesley Clark to cover politics, the White House, lobbying and the Energy Department for Energywire.

The additional reporting firepower will further expand Energywire's coverage of energy policies and politics, which has already broken key stories on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, DOE officials and White House energy appointees. Energywire is one of five publications for E&E News. It covers the transformation of the energy sector including utilities, fossil fuels, renewable energy, cybersecurity, electric transportation and energy technology.

Lesley joins E&E News from McClatchy, where she was most recently a National correspondent and previously a White House correspondent.

She also worked at the Miami Herald, where she was part of the reporting team that won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for the paper's coverage of the Elian Gonzalez story and part of the reporting team that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for its Haiti earthquake coverage in 2011.

Stories on energy and environment have been a critical reporting thread throughout Lesley's career including coverage about climate change, the Everglades, offshore drilling, the BP oil spill, hurricanes, efforts to revive the Long Island Sound, and air and water pollution.
