Center for Public Integrity names executive editor, and more

The Center for Public Integrity has named Gordon Witkin to the top editor’s position. With the Center since 2008 when he joined from U.S. News & World Report, Witkin has already been serving as acting executive editor for the nonprofit news organization while spearheading its health care and juvenile justice coverage as well as its State Integrity project.

"Big congrats to @gwitkin named executive editor at @Publici. Very much deserved!" tweeted Mark Katches with the Center for Investigative Reporting.

"Couldn't happen to a nicer guy! Congrats, @gwitkin," observed NPR's Liz Halloran.

Meanwhile, John Dunbar has been named deputy executive editor. Most recently politics editor, Dunbar will continue to oversee the subject of money in politics. At the same time, senior reporter/editor Jim Morris is now managing editor for coverage of the environment and workplace safety issues.

"Congratulations to @publici's @gwitkin & @johndunbar14 on their well-deserved promotions," announced the Center's senior political reporter Dave Levinthal. Congrats to all, indeed!
