Look out, Washington D.C. power players. The Associated Press has beefed up the side of its operation designed to uncover intentional and unintentional transgressions.
From today’s announcement:
Joining the Washington investigative team are Jeff Horwitz (pictured above, left) and Ronnie Greene (above, right).
Horwitz is currently on a Knight-Bagehot fellowship at Columbia University. As a reporter for American Banker between 2009 and 2013, he wrote about banks’ legal woes and the fallout from the housing crisis.
Greene has been a senior reporter at The Center for Public Integrity and previously was a longtime reporter and editor at the Miami Herald. He recently served as project editor for a Center series describing how the coal industry beat back miners’ claims for black lung benefits, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting.
Meanwhile, over at Money magazine, the publication is gearing up ahead of the June 2 launch of its website money.com. It has promoted senior reporter Susie Poppick to associate editor and is moving her over to the Web side full-time. Money will also welcome, starting this Wednesday, Sarina Finkelstein as online photo editor:
Finkelstein is an accomplished print and digital editor, having worked at Cigar Aficionado and Time Out New York, among others. Her new monograph, The New Forty-Niners, is an exploration of modern-day gold prospectors in California and has been featured, well, just about everywhere, including our own time.com.
Speaking of time.com, former website intern and Columbia Journalism Class of 2014 graduate Jake Davidson is joining Money later this month as a reporter-producer. He’ll cover real estate and other topics. Another journalist, who started at Money as an intern, Farnoosh Torabi, is moving up to contributing editor. She is also an author; her book is titled When She Makes More.
Finally and certainly not least, Margaret Tuohy started Monday May 5 at Business Insider as senior vice president, product development. Most recently, Tuohy (pictured, right) occupied similar roles with Turner Broadcasting and CNNMoney.com.
