Center for Investigative Reporting Launches California Project: Jobs For Cali Journos?

The Center for Investigative Reporting has collected $2.4 million in grant money for the next three years to launch a California-wide investigative journalism project. Robert J. Rosenthal, CIR’s executive director, heads the project, which so far is unnamed. They’ll be hiring an editorial director as well as at least four other staff to cover education, the environment, immigration, state governance and public safety.

There’s no explanation of what form this will take, but we’re betting they’re not launching a print product.
