State government, politics, philanthropy

Erdody joined IBJ in February 2015 and spent three years on the North of 96th beat, covering new and ongoing developments in the northern suburbs of Indianapolis. In early 2018, she switched gears to cover state government and politics. She also writes about philanthropy for IBJ.

Since graduating from the Indiana University School of Journalism in May 2012, the Michigan native has spent time at The Arizona Republic in Phoenix, The State Journal in Frankfort, Kentucky, and The Herald-Times in Bloomington. Even when she hasn’t been covering politics, she always had an interest in it. Election season can be crazy, but she loves reporting on campaigns and on Election Day (although it may have something to do with the fact that there’s always pizza in the newsroom).

Erdody still proudly cheers for the Detroit Lions, but she is a dedicated IU basketball fan. She enjoys running (she’s still surprised she ran a marathon once), playing tennis and traveling in her time off.
