In 2013, Roe was a Pulitzer finalist for Investigative Reporting for articles that exposed how manufacturers imperiled public health by continuing to use toxic flame retardants in household furniture and crib mattresses, triggering reforms at the state and national level.[8][9] The series won the Gerald Loeb Award for Large Newspapers.[10]

In 2017, Roe was a Pulitzer finalist for Public Service for "innovative and superbly written and illustrated reporting that not only checked perilous practices by pharmacies in dispensing prescription drugs but also prevented harm from happening in the first place."[11][12] The series won the Gerald Loeb Award for Investigative Reporting."[13]
