About Amy Pyle
PYLE, AMY is the investigations editor at The Sacramento Bee, a 300,000-circulation newspaper and Web site based in California’s capital. She oversees a staff of four investigative reporters and two researchers, and works with other journalists around the newsroom on a project-by-project basis. Online, she is in charge of the Web-related aspects of special projects and most of the content on The Bee’s datacenter and investigations pages. Pyle was born in Philadelphia, raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and holds an undergraduate degree in French from Mills College and a graduate degree in journalism from Northwestern University. She began her career as a summer relief reporter working the swing shift at the Fresno Bee, covering murder and mayhem, continued to the Gilroy Dispatch, where she did indeed cover the Garlic Festival – and schools – and spent a decade at the Los Angeles Times in various jobs, including working as the morning assignment editor for the now-defunct San Fernando Valley Edition when the Northridge Earthquake struck. Pyle became The Sacramento Bee’s projects editor in 2000. She lives in Davis and is a gourmet cook, an avid backpacker and a proud mother of two grown – and still growing – sons. Her husband, Robert Durell, is a freelance photographer, having taken a buyout from The Times in 2008.
