Washington Post hires fourth Ford-funded investigative reporter

The Washington Post


John Sullivan, who helped lead a Philadelphia Inquirer team to a Pulitzer Prize with an examination of violence in Philadelphia schools, will join both The Washington Post and American University in May.



Sullivan's position at the Post will be underwritten by a half-million-dollar grant the Ford Foundation announced last summer it would give the Post for government-accountability reporting. The Post hired Mike Sallah from the Miami Herald, Kimbriell Kelly from the Chicago Reporter and Amy Brittain from the Newark Star Ledger with some of that cash last year.



Sullivan, who left the Inquirer in 2011 to become a faculty member at Medill, will also teach investigative reporting at American University.
