Brittny Mejia is a Metro reporter who joined the Los Angeles Times in 2014. She writes narrative pieces with a strong emphasis on the Latino community and others that make up the diversity of L.A. and California. Mejia was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2021 in local reporting for her investigation with colleague Jack Dolan that exposed failures in Los Angeles County’s safety-net healthcare system that resulted in months-long wait times for patients, including some who died before getting appointments with specialists. She was also part of the team that won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news for coverage of the San Bernardino terrorist attack and the team that was a 2020 Pulitzer finalist for its coverage of a boat fire off the Santa Barbara coast.
