About Dawn Reiss
I believe great storytelling happens in all formats. It's knowing how to ask the right questions to get the most in-depth answers and giving context that really matters. It's about doing data-driven research and building trust while having a conversation. It also means de-mystifying complicated topics to make them conversational and understandable. I've spent the past decade working for more than 40 different national and local outlets including TIME and Time.com, U.S. News & World Report, The Atlantic, USA Today, Reuters, Fortune.com, AFAR, Travel + Leisure, Civil Eats, Crain's Chicago Business, Chicago Tribune, Chicago magazine and Chicago Reader, among many others. I began my careers as a staff reporter at the Dallas Morning News and Tampa Bay Times/St. Petersburg Times. As a generalist, I'm a Swiss Army knife who has the curiosity and reporting skills to quickly become an expert in any industry. Give me any topic and I'll make sure it's accurate, interesting and relevant. For stories, I've interviewed Maya Angelou in her home in Harlem, investigated the deaths of two sailors during the Race to Mackinac, demystified financial topics for everyday investors, covered the Italian coffee trail in Italy and interviewed the likes of Justin Bieber and Rahm Emanuel. I'm probably best known for my TIME/Time.com trial coverage of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich where I earned a Peter Lisagor Award for Best Breaking News online.
