Deputy Managing Editor
Beth Healy is deputy managing editor at WBUR, overseeing a team of local news reporters. She joined WBUR in 2019 as a member of the station’s startup investigative team. She co-wrote the team's first series, "Dying on the Sheriff's Watch," which examined deaths from poor health care at county jails and won a national Edward R. Murrow award.
Other investigations have shed light on employees required to fight for workers’ compensation amid the pandemic; state officials neglecting oversight of the troubled MBTA; and predatory investors in affordable housing.
Prior to WBUR, Healy worked at the Boston Globe, where she was twice a member of the award-winning Spotlight Team. She was part of the investigative series and podcast, “Gladiator: Aaron Hernandez and Football Inc.” and was on the team that wrote Debtors’ Hell, a Pulitzer finalist.
While at the Globe, she covered the financial beat for nearly a decade. She investigated the transit system pension fund, losses at the Harvard endowment and the abuse of immigrant domestic workers, among other stories.
