“Rose has a reputation for tenacity, and the natural curiosity that is in the DNA of every great investigative journalist,” WIVB news director Joe Schlaerth said in a statement. ” She understands what is important to Western New Yorkers and will bring those sensibilities to News 4 Investigates.”
The Buffalo CBS affiliate said Ciotta will lead the station’s investigative team “in its multiscreen reporting efforts, which include on-air, interactive features and online special sections.”
Ciotta comes to WIVB from the Philadelphia Inquirer where she was part of an investigate team that won a 2012 Pulitzer Prize. She starts Monday, August 5.
