ken hermanAustin American-Statesman columnist Ken Herman began his journalism career in 1975 at The Lufkin Daily News in East Texas. In 1977, he joined The Associated Press in Dallas, later working for the AP in Harlingen and Austin. From 1979-1988 he worked in the AP’s Capitol Bureau. In 1988, he became Austin Bureau Chief for The Houston Post. When the Post folded in 1995 (not his fault), Herman joined the American-Statesman as Capitol Bureau Chief.

 In 2001, after covering George W. Bush’s presidential campaign, Herman went to Washington for a six-month stint as Cox Newspapers White House correspondent. He returned to Austin in June 2001 to resume covering state government and politics for the American-Statesman. 

In June 2004, he returned to Washington to cover the Bush re-election campaign. From January 2005 through February 2009 he was Cox Newspapers White House correspondent.
