MARGO PIERCE

Margo Pierce is a staff writer for CityBeat, an alternative newsweekly in Cincinnati, where she focuses on issues of public policy and social justice. Her coverage includes human trafficking in the Midwest, the concentration of polluting industries near low-income neighborhoods, the long-term effects of sexoffender registration and the quality of legal defense for indigent defendants. A 2008 finalist for the Margolis Award, she has received awards of excellence from the Society of Professional Journalists for her coverage of domestic violence and local elections. She counts among her most important achievements being banned from Ohio’s Death Row, then winning the right to go back for more interviews.
