Ed Timms

Executive Editor

Ed Timms is KERA’s executive editor. He has led investigative teams on award-winning projects, supervised multi-platform operations, personnel and budget for an online and print news operation in the nation's capital and helped beginning journalists develop their skills.

Timms supervised coverage of Congress, the White House and federal agencies in Washington, D.C., as the deputy editor and later as the editor and vice president of Roll Call during a remarkably tumultuous time in U.S. politics. He is a former city editor of The Dallas Morning News.

His investigative reporting and computer-assisted analyses have uncovered widespread misconduct and questionable practices in local government, federal agencies, the military and the judicial system. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall cited his research when Batson v. Kentucky changed the way juries are chosen.

Timms has reported on conflict or its aftermath from Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, the Palestinian Territories, Angola, the Balkans, Haiti and Zaire. And he's covered many major news events in the United States.
