Stephanie K. Baer, @skbaer
This Los Angeles reporter is all over Twitter, and a great resource for info: the many, many shootings in Chicago; the virus outbreaks surrounding Chipotle. Plus, she sometimes tweets about sports and such.

Bloomquist, an anchor and reporter in Philadelphia, is great about sharing crazy crime stories. She tweets at a steady pace, and is worth checking out.


Megan Cassidy, @meganrcassidy
This Arizona Republic reporter covers the Phoenix Police Department. And believe us, you always want a crime reporter who can feel shock, no matter how long they’ve been on the beat.


Jim Douglas, @wfaajdouglas
Douglas, of WFAA in Texas, caught the bail hearing of the Affluenza mom Tonya Couch.


Justin George, @justingeorge
This reporter from the Baltimore Sun sends a steady stream of Tweets. You might know him from his coverage of Freddie Gray’s death, and the tense, ongoing aftermath.
