Stephen K. Doig was the founding Knight Chair in Journalism, specializing in computer-assisted reporting, at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication of Arizona State University. Before joining ASU in 1996, he was associate editor/research of the Miami Herald.

He stepped down from the Knight Chair in 2017 but remains on the Cronkite faculty teaching online courses in data journalism. During his 20-year career at The Herald, he also served variously as state capital bureau chief, science editor, aviation writer, pollster and lottery columnist.
