My name is Allison Pohle, and I’m a reporter for the Wall Street Journal. I graduated from the Missouri School of Journalism with a Bachelor’s in Journalism, a minor in business, and knowledge of the lyrics to way too many country songs. I moved to NYC for a few months to research for The Investigative Fund, before moving to Boston, where I worked as a staff writer for Boston.com for a year and a half, before freelancing and then making my way into the world of public radio as producer/director for the NPR show On Point.

I specialize in deeply reported longform stories, some of which have been recognized by national media outlets. You can read those here and here.¬†

You can also check out my blog, where I wrote extensively (read: very, very extensively) about my experience studying abroad in London. Other posts, like this viral post I wrote for Medium’s vertical¬†The Archipelago, will give you a better sense of my writing style.

One thought on “About

  1. Good work on the sex abuse survivor letters.
    The impact they have suffered comes across very well.

    I saw the imbedded response from the RCAB and note that when your paper carries the PR releases of the RCAB there is rarely a similar imbedded comment from survivors or their advocates.
    Not fair and balanced
