USA Today Network names state investigative team for Pennsylvania

The USA Today Network assembled an award-winning team of journalists to investigate stories that are making a big impact across Pennsylvania and its local communities.

“Our network is committed to surveillance journalism that goes beyond the headlines of the day, and that’s what the Pennsylvania team will deliver,” said Mike Feeley, USA Today Network’s Mid-Atlantic Editor.

Lead political reporting for the state team is Bruce Siwy. A former adjunct faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, he has spent most of his career reporting to city and county governments in western Pennsylvania and has received multiple Keystone Media Awards in categories including investigative and corporate reporting. He recently published his first book, a true crime titled Jailing the Johnstown Judge: Joe O’Kicki, the Mob and Corrupt Justice.

Bethany Rodgers is the government correspondent for the USA Today Network in Pennsylvania.

Bethany Rodgers takes on government responsibilities. She grew up in the Washington, DC area and graduated from the University of Maryland. She has covered crime in Maryland, religion in Florida and most recently the state government in Utah. She moved back across the country last year and joined the USA TODAY Network in August – just in time to cover the US Senate race between John Fetterman and Dr. to report to Oz.
