News Apps

A bit of work news: NPR is spinning up a News Apps team. This will be an interdisciplinary group of data journalists, designers and developers which will work on projects across NPR.org, NPR Music, Planet Money, StateImpact, stations, etc.

Management just announced the hire of the Chicago Tribune’s Brian Boyer as team lead. NPR.org editorial designers Nelson Hsu, Stephanie d’Otreppe and I will join this new team, as will StateImpact data journalist Matt Stiles. And we’re looking to hire two developers to fill out the team.

This should be fun.
