Sasha Ingber is a national security correspondent located in the Scripps News Washington, D.C., bureau. Before joining Scripps News, she was a breaking news reporter at NPR, covering major national and international events including the Trump administration's denuclearization talks with North Korea, former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and the Hong Kong protests. Sasha has been a frequent contributor of articles and videos to National Geographic, and the associate editor of a Smithsonian culture and travel publication. A Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting grantee, her work has also appeared in The Washington Post Magazine, The Atlantic, ESPN, and other publications. In 2016, she co-founded Music in Exile [], a multimedia nonprofit organization that documents the music and stories of refugees.
