Dean Baquet Will Lead Local Investigative Fellowship Program for New York Times

From a New York Times story by Eduardo Medina headlined “Dean Baquet Will Lead Local Investigative Fellowship Program for The Times”:

Dean Baquet, who got his start in journalism at local newspapers and made his name as an investigative reporter, will lead a new local investigative journalism fellowship program at The New York Times when he steps down in June after eight years as the newspaper’s executive editor.

During his tenure as executive editor, Mr. Baquet, 65, urged his journalists to pursue investigations that could yield the highest possible impact. Now, he and a group of investigative editors plan to teach young journalists how to do the work on a local level.
