Joyce Terhaar, the former executive editor of The Sacramento Bee, brings more than three decades of experience as a California journalist to her role at CalMatters. Terhaar served in the top two editing roles at The Bee for two decades, encouraging investigative and data journalism that held to account powerful people - particularly the politicians making decisions for all Californians. She also wrote a bi-monthly column focused on government transparency and media issues. Early in her career, Terhaar reported for the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota, The Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, Calif., and The Bee. She is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas. A Minnesota native, she grew up on a farm and developed a lifelong love of the outdoors that she nurtures through hikes around the world. She met her husband, Geoff Long, in a newsroom and they have two grown sons.
