Farewell to Whistleblower, hello to Full Disclosure

April 27th, 2014 · No Comments · Projects

ManandskylineAfter six years, dozens of stories and more than 7,000 tips, I have retired Whistleblower, the Star Tribune’s grassroots, consumer watchdog column that I have overseen since creating it in 2008. Starting next week, I will become a ┬áMetro columnist and blogger. I see “Full Disclosure” as the next experiment in quick-turn investigative reporting. I’m hoping for a more conversational style with an occasional dash of outrage. I will not hide my bias in favor of transparency and accountability, but I have no intention of writing screeds. I left those behind when I gave up the editor’s chair at the Wesleyan Argus back in 1988.
