Matt Drange, recently an investigative reporter, left The Information in October to pursue a new project. He has spent much of his career reporting at the intersection of the tech industry and government. At SABEW’s next webinar, he’ll show you how to harness state and federal FOI laws to generate a consistent flow of documents you can use on any beat. Please come with an open mind and questions — specific examples of roadblocks you’ve run into offer great learning opportunities for your colleagues.


Matt Drange, most recently an investigative reporter at The Information, is the 2019 of the Larry Birger Young Business Journalist contest, honoring journalists under the age of 30. Drange will receive the Birger award, a $1,500 honorarium and travel stipend to New York made possible by a gift from rbb Communications of Miami. Previously Drange was a staff writer at Forbes magazine and a business reporter at The Center for Investigative Reporting. Drange graduated from Humboldt State University and earned a master’s degree from the Columbia Journalism School.
