Detroit's homegrown Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist is a national phenomenon and celebrity in his own right thanks to a best-selling book, a nationally broadcast show, The Americans with Charlie LeDuff, and his work for outlets such as VICE and Mother Jones.
LeDuff's flamboyant reporting style telegraphs his personality, humor, and passion for change, and he's used it to reveal serious injustices such as hours-long police response times in Detroit and reprehensible conditions in the city's fire stations. "Thank you. It's nice to know you care, Detroit," he says of our readers' selection for Best TV Journalist.
