Bob Drogin


Bob Drogin is a journalist, author and longtime summer resident of West Tisbury. He joined the Los Angeles Times in New York in 1983, and has reported from 49 states and 51 countries, but never from Los Angeles. He is now Washington deputy bureau chief and national security editor, a job that took him to Singapore in June for the Trump-Kim summit and chili crabs. His 2007 book “Curveball,” about an Iraqi who conned the CIA about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, won the Cornelius Ryan Award for best nonfiction book on international affairs. In 2017, it was adapted into “Baghdaddy,” a money-losing Off-Broadway musical that he wishes you had seen. He has won or shared numerous other awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Public Service, the Robert Kennedy Award for National Reporting, and an Overseas Press Club Award.
