Center For Public Integrity Lays Off Two Reporters Amid Restructuring

The Center for Public Integrity laid off two reporters Friday and will not immediately fill three budgeted positions in what the nonprofit investigative outlet’s top executive described as a newsroom restructuring.

CEO Peter Bale said the staff reduction is the result of financial pressures and as part of an effort to increasingly focus on core operations like data journalism and visualization. Bale, who joined from CNN International in late 2014, said that the Center’s budget for 2015 was $9.3 million. This year it is a little over $8 million.
