ABC News hired James Gordon Meek and Josh Margolin to its investigative team, and added its radio reporter Aaron Katersky and Lee Ferran from its web division to the muckraking arm.
Meek, a New York Daily News veteran, will join the Washington bureau next month as an investigative producer. Most recently, he served as senior counterterrorism advisor and investigator for the House Committee on Homeland Security — tackling such threats as the aftermath of the Boston bombing.
And from The New York Post comes Margolin, a new senior investigative reporter, whose cover story in the News Corp. tabloid last month revealed political operatives attempting to rig the New York City mayoral election.
Meanwhile, Katersky, an ABC News Radio correspondent, will now take on investigative duties. And Ferran, an investigative reporter on the digital team, will become the editor of “The Blotter” blog on ABCNews.com
