Scott Morris

I'm an experienced breaking news and investigative reporter in Oakland. I worked for six years as a staff breaking news reporter and editor at San Francisco-based Bay City News Service before becoming a full time freelancer in 2017. Since then, I've been writing investigative features on policing, white collar crime, sexual assault, labor issues, the environment and housing. I still work in breaking news as a blogger and occasionally take on stories involving national legislation or policy issues.
