ProPublica Adds Ken Armstrong as a Senior Reporter

He joins from The Marshall Project

In Dec 2015 The Marshall Project and ProPublica published an investigative project that resulted out of a partnership between the two organizations. Called An Unbelievable Story of Rape, the much-discussed longread about a multi-state search for a serial rapist deservedly won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Reporting. The prize was shared by the two journalists who authored the story, T. Christian Miller of ProPublica and Ken Armstrong of The Marshall Project.

Ken Armstrong of The Marshall Project, it was announced today, will now be Ken Armstrong of ProPublica, moving from a staff writer role at The Marshall Project to a senior reporter role at ProPublica.

“Over his reporting career, Ken has consistently taken on important stories, writing with moral force about people in power and creating lasting impact in the communities he has covered,” said ProPublica managing editor Robin Fields in a statement. “We are thrilled to bring his tireless reporting to our newsroom.”

Prior to joining The Marshall Project in 2014, a few months before the publication launched, Armstrong had been an investigative reporter at The Seattle Times, winning an earlier Pulitzer there, in 2012, for investigative reporting. He had been a reporter at the Chicago Tribune before then.
