Buzzfeed UK adds reporter

BuzzFeed UK will soon welcome Siraj Datoo as a reporter. Currently a big data columnist for The Guardian while he completes his Master’s in newspaper journalism at City Journalism School, Datoo is expected to join Buzzfeed's British branch next month.

The auto-recommend service @MagicRecs was on top of that news, tweeting out alerts to Datoo's friends and prompting him to tweet, "And in case @MagicRecs hasn't yet made it blindingly obvious, I'm very excited to be joining @BuzzFeedUK as a news reporter in April."

"A huge congrats to @sirajdatoo and best of luck in his career at @BuzzFeedUK," responded WNIP's Natasha Clark. "Anyone who knows you will know you're ideal for it."

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
