Elly Yu

Investigative Reporter (she/her)

I’m a reporter on the investigative team, where I work to uncover truths and hold power to account in Southern California.

Before joining this newsroom in late 2019, I worked at NPR stations in Washington D.C. and Atlanta. My reporting has focused on healthcare, immigration, and state politics. From 2017-2018, I was a fellow with Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting.

As someone who grew up in Los Angeles County, I am excited to be reporting in a place I deeply care about and call home.
