Anjeanette Damon

Reporter, ProPublica

Anjeanette Damon is a reporter at ProPublica who focuses on government accountability. Prior to joining ProPublica she worked at the Reno Gazette Journal and USA Today Network as a government watchdog reporter and regional investigative editor. Damon’s investigation of in-custody deaths at the Washoe County jail resulted in legislative action and was recognized as a finalist for an ONA public service award. Her series on deplorable living conditions faced by people with severe mental illness under state care prompted immediate action by Nevada’s governor and legislation to improve oversight of the housing program. In 2019, Damon was lead reporter and writer on Season 2 of “The City,” a USA Today investigative podcast. She is based in Reno, Nevada.
