About John Sutter
SUTTER, JOHN is a reporter at The Oklahoman, a 200,000-circulation statewide newspaper based in Oklahoma City. He covers the environment, mental health and some general assignment news. Sutter is currently working on a series of stories about the Tar Creek Superfund site in northeast Oklahoma, where residents are being paid to leave because of environmental hazards. Sutter is a native of Oklahoma. He left the state to attend Emory University, in Atlanta, where he earned a degree in International Studies and Journalism. One summer during college, he worked as an intern at a newspaper in Cape Town, South Africa. After graduating in 2005, he spent six weeks as a post-graduate fellow at the Poynter Institute, in St. Petersburg, Fla., before taking a job at The Oklahoman. Sutter enjoys outdoor activities, particularly skiing and biking. After college, he went on an extended biking and camping trip through the Appalachian Mountains. He is trying to learn to skateboard, and almost crashed today on the way home from the grocery store, with eggs in his backpack. He lives with his partner, also named John, in Oklahoma City.
