Welcome! I’m Sophia Tulp, an award-winning journalist and Emmy-nominated documentary producer covering the South Region of the U.S. and beyond for the Associated Press.
Based in Atlanta since June 2019, I have contributed to AP's coverage of some of the most significant stories of the moment, including those that touch on the intersections of the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice, the 2020 election and Senate runoffs in Georgia and the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
While reporting remotely and in the field for AP, I've helped break pandemic-related news, covered one of the busiest hurricane seasons on-record and contributed to enterprise stories on the racial reckoning that has swept the country.
I've also worked as a national supervising editor, filing copy from AP journalists across the country and pushing out APNewsAlerts and as a global digital producer, posting to AP social media accounts, coordinating the promotion of our top stories to clients and verifying and securing user-generated content.
While I’m originally from the greater Kansas City area, I lived and reported in New York, Los Angeles and in the Balkans with organizations such as the NPR network, PBS and USA Today.
I graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in journalism from Ithaca College in 2019 through the Park Scholar Program, a full scholarship that combined my passions for leadership, community service and communications.
