The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism have announced the fellowship winners in its Investigative Reporting Fellowships:
- • Ryan Gabrielson of the East Valley Tribune in Mesa, Ariz., a recipient of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting, and
- • Matt Isaacs, editorial coordinator for The Lee Brandenburg Trust established by a philanthropist dedicated to investigative journalism and social justice.
The director of the program is Professor Lowell Bergman, the former “60 Minutes” producer whose tobacco industry investigation was chronicled in the 1999 film “The Insider,” in which Bergman was played by Al Pacino.
A panel of journalists chose the fellows, who receive a $45,000 salary and are provided with office space, phones, and expenses for approved travel.
Here’s a link to the release detailing the fellowships.
