Hector BecerraA native Angeleno who grew up in Boyle Heights, Hector Becerra’s first foray into journalism was as the editor of the University Times at Cal State Los Angeles. He started his career at the Los Angeles Times in 1999, and was a general assignment reporter until 2014, covering everything from wildfires to crime to Latino cultural trends. He has been among the first to a murder scene as part of a ride-along in South L.A. and has tried his hand as a field worker, picking strawberries in Santa Maria.

Becerra was part of the team of reporters that won the Pulitizer Prize’s Public Service award for their coverage of the city of Bell corruption scandal. He is now the morning assignment editor for the California section.
