The creation of this team recognizes that the digital age allows for novel approaches to investigative reporting. The team will include five reporters, an assignment editor, a database reporter, and a graphics reporter. They will supplement The Post’s existing team of 11 journalists who are dedicated to investigative journalism.
“We see a continuing need for strong investigative reporting even as we see new models developing for how that work can be carried out,” said Martin Baron, executive editor. “This team will be a powerful new asset for The Post, where investigative reporting has long been a strength. Over time its staff will work collaboratively with beat reporters throughout our newsroom.”
