  • Pulitzer prize winning journalist Edward Pound will head up Al Jazeera America’s 16-person investigative team. An alum of The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and other pubs, Pound will be based at AJA’s Washington DC bureau. The new channel will launch on the former Current TV.

  • As FBN’s Sandra Smith prepares to give birth to her first child, she tells the Chicago Tribune about the months of back-and-forth between her native Chicago, where her husband lived, and a new job in New York. “Flight delays, snowy weather, tight time schedules made it very challenging.
