Sharon McNary

Infrastructure Reporter (she/her)

I cover infrastructure, which I define as all the different things we build together to make life better. So we’re talking the power grid, our systems for managing rainfall, sewage and drinking water, air quality, roads, ports and more. Part of that is reporting on how well and equitably they serve my fellow Angelenos.

I’ve worked my entire career in SoCal journalism, in TV, wire service, newspapers, radio and online, and I welcome your questions about how L.A. works.

I’m a native Angeleno, a military veteran, a former Peace Corps Volunteer and an endurance athlete. My favorite places to be are on the starting line of the L.A. Marathon and riding my bike up Glendora Mountain Road. I also swim, knit, cook, sew, and weave.
