Stuart Leavenworth is California enterprise editor, supervising reporters in the Bay Area, the Central Valley and Los Angeles. Since joining the Los Angeles Times in early 2019, he’s edited award-winning investigations of the U.S. nuclear legacy in the Marshall Islands, abandoned oil wells in California, and more recently, projects on the die-off of gray whales and the lethal toll of heat waves in California. Leavenworth spent most of his career with McClatchy as a Sacramento Bee reporter and editor, Beijing bureau chief and national correspondent in Washington. A native of Fresno and graduate from UC Santa Cruz and Columbia University, Leavenworth is based in the Bay Area, where once worked as a chef apprentice, perfecting his knife skills – good training for an editor.
