and use computer software and statistical tools to tell stories about crime, education, elections,
demographics, the economy and other governmental and social problems. Professor Steve Doig is
the Knight Chair in Journalism, specializing in computer-assisted reporting — the use of computers

and social science techniques to help journalists do their jobs better. The chair was created
with a $1.5 million endowment given to the Cronkite School by the John S. and James L. Knight
Foundation. Professor Doig joined the Arizona State University faculty in 1996 after a 23-year career
as a newspaper journalist, including 19 years at the Miami Herald. There, he served variously as
research editor, pollster, science editor, columnist, federal courts reporter, state capital bureau
chief, education reporter and aviation writer.Investigative projects on which he worked at the
Miami Herald have won several major journalism prizes, including:
• The Pulitzer Prize for Public Service (1993) for What Went Wrong, an analysis of the damage
patterns from Hurricane Andrew that showed how weakened building codes and poor construction
practices contributed to the extent of the disaster.
• The Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting (1994) for Lost in America, an examination of
how the nation’s immigration policies have failed.
• The Investigative Reporters & Editors Award (1995) for Crime and No Punishment, a probe into
why South Florida had the highest crime rate and the lowest incarceration rate of any major
metropolitan area in the country.

the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, for which he was awarded a Bronze Star for his service.
He currently teaches Precision Journalism and Media Research Methods. He also served the
Cronkite School as interim director for two years.
Professor Doig actively consults with print and broadcast news media outlets around the
world on computer-assisted reporting problems. Examples include a study of racial profiling in
Massachusetts traffic tickets for the Boston Globe, a study for the Cleveland Plain Dealer of racial
differences in access to health care, and an analysis of the 185,000 uncounted ballots in the Florida
presidential election of 2000 for the Miami Herald.

He is an active member of IRE and served on the 5,000-member organization’s board of directors
for four years. Recently, he worked with IRE to organize a new journalism contest, called the Phil
Governo dos Açores
Meyer Award, to recognize the best journalism done using social science techniques.
In addition, he has been a speaker at many national meetings of journalism and other
organizations. He also has traveled to Canada, England, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil
and Indonesia to do training in precision journalism techniques.
Professor Doig’s research interests include newsroom diversity, demographics, public opinion
polling, and finding techniques used by other professions that can be developed into tools for
journalists.
He is happy to work with graduate students whose projects require quantitative methods such
as content analysis or survey research, or with students who are interested in doing an applied
project that results in a significant piece of journalism.
