Phil Pruitt and Marcia Myers Join Scripps DC Bureau

The E.W. Scripps Company announced two hires today at their investigative reporting newsroom in Washington. Phil Pruitt is the new director of digital content and Marcia Myers joins the team as the senior investigations editor.

Pruitt will lead digital news and information operations for the bureau, including launching DecodeDC, a new multi-platform political news outlet acquired by Scripps last fall. Prior to joining Scripps, he served as senior politics editor for Yahoo News in D.C. He has also worked for USA Today and Gannett News Service, and was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team for Gannett that authored a series titled “Getting Away with Murder” which uncovered hundreds of child abuse-related deaths that were going undetected each year as a result of errors by coroners.

Myers will be tasked with developing, leading and editing national, high-impact investigative projects. She has spent the past several years in London, reporting for Bloomberg. Before that, she spent 5  years as an investigative reporter for The Baltimore Sun. Over the course of her career, she has twice won the George Polk Award -once for international reporting and once for medical coverage.

Both will report to work January 13th. Congratulations, Phil and Marcia, from us here at FishbowlDC!
