Billy Mitchell

Billy Mitchell is FedScoop's Editor in Chief.

He leads an award-winning team of reporters in providing breaking news and analysis on the ways technology is transforming the operations and services of the federal government. Mitchell covers developments around the use of IT at the White House, Pentagon and Department of Veterans Affairs, among others.

Prior to joining FedScoop in early 2014, Mitchell embedded himself in Washington, D.C.'s tech startup scene for a year as a tech reporter at InTheCapital, now known as DC Inno.

Mitchell previously covered Kentucky's gritty judicial system and law enforcement community as a Kentucky Press Association award-winning crime and courts reporter for the Kentucky New Era. He also freelanced for the Leaf Chronicle, a daily in Clarksville, Tennessee, and the Nashville Scene, an alternative weekly tracing the counterculture of Music City.

After earning his degree at Virginia Tech and winning the school's Excellence in Print Journalism award, Mitchell received his master's degree from New York University in magazine writing while interning at publications like Rolling Stone.

When he's not head down in copy or out talking to CIOs about their newest IT initiatives, you can probably find Billy at a concert, rooting on his beloved Green Bay Packers, trying to hit small, dimpled white ball into a hole, or attempting to brew the perfect tasting beer.
