CPI Hires Media Relations Specialist in Wake of Pulitzer Controversy

Fresh off their controversial Pulitzer win, the Center for Public Integrity announced today the hiring of a new Media Relations Specialist, William Gray. Gray had been an operations producer at C-SPAN, handling breaking news and live and overnight coverage for each of the three C-SPAN networks. The announcement says Gray will be responsible for “enhancing exposure and outreach for the organization’s landmark journalism.”

CPI has been embroiled in a back and forth with ABC News over whether reporters Brian Ross and Matt Mosk should have been given more credit for a series of articles written about black lung disease in coal miners in West Virginia. ABC News President Ben Sherwood has requested that CPI reporter Chris Hamby share his Pulitzer with Ross and Most. CPI contends that Hamby did almost all the work on the story and that ABC merely repackaged his reporting for television. You can read Sherwood’s letter to CPI here, and CPI Executive Director William Buzenberg‘s response here.

CPI also announced today the hiring of Eleanor Bell as  multimedia producer. She comes to the Center from a different ABC -the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. She had been a multimedia reporter there.
