Center for Investigative Reporting merges with Bay Citizen

Congratulations to our friends at the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), who just announced their merger with the Bay Citizen. According to CIR, the merger “will create the largest nonprofit organization in the country focused on watchdog and accountability journalism.” You can read about the merger on the CIR blog and on the Bay Citizen site.

CIR is one of our partners on the “Food for 9 Billion” project. Last month the organization won a MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
