Hi! I'm Samantha Sunne

I'm a New Orleans-based freelance journalist, teacher and writer, specializing in data and investigative reporting.

Data + Journalism

Data + Journalism: A Story-Driven Approach to Learning Data Reporting is a hands-on, introductory textbook to be published by Routledge in January 2023.

Investigative reporting

I'm currently a ProPublica Local Reporting Fellow with WVUE-TV in New Orleans. You can read my past investigative stories on Contently.

Tools for Reporters

Every other week I recommend a tool that makes reporting easier, faster and more powerful.


I'm the Director of Community for Hacks/Hackers, a journalism/tech nonprofit with groups around the world.
