Pulitzer-winning Hamby leaves CPI for Buzzfeed
Just two days after winning the investigative reporting Pulitzer, Chris Hamby announces he will depart the Center for Public Integrity. His destination? Buzzfeed.
"I am thrilled to be joining the amazing investigative team @BuzzFeed. @SchoofsFeed @KenBensinger @JSVine @AlexCampbell @AramRoston," he began. "To be clear: I agreed to join the @BuzzFeed investigative team a month ago. This has nothing to do with recent events." He also tweeted, "I will always look back fondly on my four years @PublicI. It is a great place to work, full of wonderful people and beautiful ideals."
At CNN, Peter Hamby chimed in, "Go Hambys! (no relation)."
