Personnel note: Miami Herald’s Elizabeth Koh to cover Florida Legislature

The Miami Herald has promoted one of its regional government reporters in South Florida to cover the Legislature in Tallahassee.

Elizabeth Koh, a 24-year-old Brown University graduate, started working at the Herald in May, and has written stories ranging from a Puerto Rican baby stuck in medical limbo after Hurricane Irma to the recent passage of an anti-Semitism ordinance that gives officers in Bal Harbour Village more power to investigate hate crimes.

Koh will now cover state policy and politics for the Herald, starting on Jan. 4 — five days before the 2018 Session starts. She will fill the spot left vacant by Kristen M. Clark, who left the Tallahassee bureau in mid-October.

“I’m so very grateful to everyone here for a whirlwind seven months in South Florida, and I can’t wait to get started reporting with the stellar Herald/Tampa Bay Times team in a few weeks,” Koh tweeted.

Koh will come in around the same time Emily L. Mahoney starts her new gig covering state politics for the Tampa Bay Times as part of the combined Times/Herald Tallahassee bureau.

Before joining the Herald, Koh covered national breaking news for McClatchy Newspapers and Texas politics for the Dallas Morning News from Washington, D.C., according to her online portfolio.

Her reporting has appeared in the New York Times, The Washington Post and the Texas Tribune.
