WaPostie Becomes A HuffPostie

Lawrence Roberts is moving from the Washington Post to the Huffington Post, in what some say is symbolic of online media’s “coming of age,” Editor & Publisher reports.

Roberts, who was with the Post for 14 years, spent the last 5 years as head investigative editor. He joins the Huffington Post as head of the new Investigative Fund, a $1.75 million endeavor launched in March that will produce multimedia investigative stories.

“We are delighted to have Larry on board,” said Arianna Huffington in a release. “Larry’s background in investigative journalism—including being part of three Pulitzer-winning teams —as well as his experience in online journalism make him an ideal pick to spearhead the Investigative Fund.”
