No. 79: Capitol Weekly’s Top 100

No. 79 John Myers

When it comes to political reporting, John Myers has it, well, covered. He’s the Sacramento bureau chief for the mighty Los Angeles Times; his byline appears regularly in both the print paper and the website; he does California’s longest-running political podcast (“California Politics Podcast,” which launched in 2006). Before coming to the Times, he was capitol bureau chief for KQED in San Francisco, and he was also a political reporter for Channel 10, the ABC outlet in Sacramento. As if that weren’t enough, Myers moderated the gubernatorial debates in 2010 and 2014. He is a product of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and earlier graduated from Duke University. Myers is also notable for a refreshing attitude. Although he’s a sophisticated and experienced reporter, he seems to greatly enjoy covering politics and its people. This approach has its rewards – Myers is probably the best-known political reporter in the state.
