Biography

Edward Lee Pitts is the Washington Bureau Chief for WORLD magazine. His assignments have sent him from Capitol Hill to the White House to the Supreme Court. But his reporting also has taken him beyond the Capital Beltway. Leading up to the 2010 elections, Lee embarked on a 10-day, 4,225 mile cross-country trip through competitive congressional districts in 16 states. In 2004-2005, as a reporter for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Lee embedded with a National Guard Regimental Combat unit in Iraq for nearly 7 months. Before joining WORLD, Lee served as press secretary for U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander.
