Mollie Bryant, formerly an investigative reporter in Mississippi and Texas, has joined Oklahoma Watch to cover state issues and government, working out of the State Capitol.
Bryant comes to Oklahoma Watch after serving as the state investigative reporter for The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Mississippi, where her work called attention to misuse of funds, criminal justice issues and systemic problems with the state’s campaign finance laws.
Bryant began her career in the Texas Panhandle, where she was an education and enterprise reporter for The Amarillo Globe-News. In Amarillo, her stories led to the testing of one of the largest rape kit backlogs in Texas and administrative changes within the local police department.
“Mollie is a skilled and tenacious reporter who has a passion for investigative journalism,” said David Fritze, executive editor of Oklahoma Watch. “She will be a great addition to our staff.”
