Blake to lead BuzzFeed's I-team in UK

Jan 14, 2015

BuzzFeed has charged Heidi Blake with setting up and managing its investigative journalism unit in the United Kingdom. Blake is currently an assistant editor with the Sunday Times, where she is part of that publication's Insight investigative team.

"Thrilled to be joining @BuzzFeedNews as UK investigations editor to set up a brand new team in London after three wonderful years at the ST," she tweets, continuing, "Can't wait to work with the phenomenal @SchoofsFeed, @jvgarrison and their incredible US team, & @lukelewis, @rcolvile & @jimwaterson in UK."

Matthew Zeitlin there jokes, "we liberated heidi blake from the sunday times paywall."

"Beyond thrilled that the multi award winning @heidiblakeST is to join BuzzFeed as UK head of investigations," shares UK editor Luke Lewis.

As a bonus, Blake adds, "And we're hiring! 3 spots opening for brilliant, forensic, scoop-making investigative journalists to join me at @BuzzFeedNews in London."
