Former OC Weekly, District Weekly and LA CityBeat editor and publisher Will Swaim just landed himself a media gig. He’s the new managing editor of the Franklin Center‘s nationwide news organization.
Swaim fills us in via email.
[Franklin Institute runs] a network of investigative reporters working on government waste, fraud and abuse–pretty much what I’ve done since my days at OC Weekly, the District Weekly and (too, too briefly) LA City Beat, where we assembled remarkable teams of reporters dedicated to ferreting out corruption.
I’m also responsible for hiring investigative reporters. It’s good to be part of a growing organization.
Pretty sure he just said “hiring.” Take note investigative journos of the Southland.
