WSJ’s Stecklow jumps to Reuters

Pulitzer-winnning investigative reporter Steve Stecklow leaves the Wall Street Journal to join Reuters in London as a member of the investigations team. (David Carr reports the Journal is also losing Pulitzer-winner Douglas Blackmon to the Washington Post.) From the Reuters memo:

Steve previously worked at The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Washington Star, The Philadelphia Bulletin and The Atlantic City Press. He has taught investigative journalism at Boston University and Emerson College. In his spare time, he is an avid fly fisherman.

A dual U.S.-British citizen, Steve is currently living outside Boston, Mass. He will start in early February and relocate as soon as possible to London, where he previously lived for seven years.

The full memo is after the jump.

Colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce that Steve Stecklow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, will be joining Reuters in London as a member of our expanding investigations team.

Steve Stecklow

Steve, who early in his career was a Reuters stringer in Philadelphia, joins us from The Wall Street Journal. His investigations have spanned the globe. This past year, he spearheaded a series that documented the use of Western and Chinese technology by repressive regimes to crack down on dissidents. In 2007, Steve shared the Pulitzer Prize for public service with three Wall Street Journal colleagues for a series on backdated stock options. The stories sparked numerous federal investigations and indictments. In 2003, Steve and Alix Freedman, now Reuters’ Global Editor for Ethics and Standards, were finalists for a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for their series on corruption in the United Nations’ oil-for-food program. Steve also has won or shared the George Polk Award three times, including in 1996, for exposing a massive Ponzi scheme in a story edited by Steve Adler.

Steve previously worked at The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Washington Star, The Philadelphia Bulletin and The Atlantic City Press. He has taught investigative journalism at Boston University and Emerson College. In his spare time, he is an avid fly fisherman.

A dual U.S.-British citizen, Steve is currently living outside Boston, Mass. He will start in early February and relocate as soon as possible to London, where he previously lived for seven years. Please join me in welcoming Steve to Reuters.

Best,

Mike
