BuzzFeed has selected Gregory Johnsen as the inaugural Michael Hastings National Security Reporting Fellow. During the year-long fellowship, Johnsen will focus on “US national security and its impact both domestically and around the world,” according to a release.
“Gregory Johnsen has already proven himself one of his generation’s wisest and most original voices on national security. He’s the right writer to carry on Michael’s legacy of fiercely intelligent and deeply compelling journalism about how America has shaped and been shaped by more than a decade of war,” said Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, in a statement.
Johnsen begins October 20.
