The Center for Public Integrity has appointed two new digital journalists to work on audience development and interactive news applications.
John Ketchum joins the Center today as its new Engagement Editor, charged with making our investigations more reader-focused, leading our audience development efforts and directing our engagement strategies.
He joins the Center for Public Integrity from NPR where he worked as an assistant producer/editor for Morning Edition. Before that he was at Marketplace as part of a four person team dedicated to covering the income divide in America. John blogged and ran social media strategy for the team.
"I am excited to break down complex topics in a way that people can understand in the social space," said John. "I believe that now more than ever, people want to understand the world around them. This means meeting them at the mediums they use."
When he's not working, John likes to cheer on his favorite team, the Detroit Lions. He tweets at @ketchcast.
