California Enterprise Editor

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.
