AP Expands Washington, US, and International Investigative Reporting

ap_logoThe Associated Press announced today an expansion and reorganization of its Washington, US, and international investigative reporting efforts.

Their revamped mission will be “to develop investigations around breaking news events across the globe and produce exclusive reports that expose wrongdoing and illuminate social issues,” according to the announcement. The wire service also said that they plan to share some of the data from their investigative reporting with member news orgs to help them produce their own local content.

Joining the Washington team will be Ronnie Greene, currently a senior reporter at The Center for Public Integrity, and Jeff Horwitz, who’s on a Knight-Bagehot fellowship at Columbia University.

US investigations will focus on state and local data-driven projects with AP journos  David B. Caruso, Michael Kunzelman, Garance Burke and Holbrooke Mohr joining the team.

And International investigations will be led by Washington-based editor Trish Wilson with a team including Frank Bajak, based in Lima, Peru; Erika Kinetz in Shanghai; Richard Lardner in Washington; and Raphael Satter in London.

Taking Out the Trash

What we almost missed today…

ABC is stealing WaPo’s Chris Cillizza‘s flavor. Webnewser reports ABC is expanding its digital only content with the launch of The Fix. Only problem is The Fix is already taken by avid Twitter-er Cillizza (almost 10,000 followers total).

In yesterday’s Playbook, Mike Allen predicted this USA Today cover story on religion in America would be a “sure slot on network news.” And he was right- last night ABC, CBS and NBC each ran a piece.

Tipsters bring to our attention today other great talents of IWP lineage: AP’s Anne Flaherty, Pamela Hess and Richard Lardner, Politico’s Manu Raju and Jennifer DiMascio, Boston Globe’s Bryan Bender, Wash Times Eli Lake, and Roll Call CongressNow’s George Cahlink . In the words of one tipster, “the list goes on and on.”
