Doug Swanson (investigative reporter) Scott Burns (lead business columnist) Robert Dodge (Washington bureau chief) David McLemore (San Antonio bureau chief) Ed Bark and Manny Mendoza (both TV critics/writers) Lennox Samuels (Mexico City bureau chief) Arnold Hamilton (Oklahoma City bureau chief) Terry Blount (motorsports writer) Sue Smith (asst. managing editor/features) Philip Wuntch (film critic) Tom Huang (features editor) Alan Pusey (reporter) (Source)
