Brenda Wintrode covers state government, agencies and politics. Before joining The Baltimore Banner, Wintrode wrote an award winning series of long form investigations for Wisconsin Watch. For nearly a year, she examined wrongful child abuse allegations leveled by a nationally-recognized child abuse expert that were later rejected by juries, court officials, law enforcement and other doctors. Wintrode's work has been cited in a class-action lawsuit against the doctor. One story featuring a man convicted of killing a child in his care prompted a federal public defender to investigate his chances for an appeal. Wintrode earned a bachelor's of science in business administration from Bryant University in Rhode Island. After deciding to make a career switch, she pursued a graduate degree from the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism where she was named outstanding master’s student of the December 2020 cohort.
