The Investigative News Network, the nonprofit support group formed last year at the Rockefeller Foundation's Pocantico conference center in New York, has been busy in recent weeks adding members, and it announced yesterday that it has hired its first CEO.
The group, which now counts 32 members, announced in April that it had added four new members: The Austin Bulldog, The San Francisco Public Press, FairWarning and Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting.
And it announced earlier this week that it had added eight more: the Common Language Project, The Lens, The Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism, The Philadelphia Public School Notebook, Spot.Us, Youth Today, The New Haven Independent, and the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting.
INN's new CEO is Kevin Davis. Here's a link to the release from INN.
