Three members of the Alabama Political Reporter‘s staff have recently earned advances in their careers.
Chip Brownlee, while continuing his work for APR, has been signed as a freelance reporter for the Washington Post. Brownlee worked with Post staff in covering the 2019 Legislative Session reporting on the state’s abortion debate.
Brownlee has also been accepted to the master’s program at the Columbia Journalism School in New York City.
APR‘s Chandler “Charlie” Walker is working as a New York Times freelance reporter currently on assignment.
Brandon Moseley was recently awarded a spot at the Kavli Science Editing Workshops sponsored by The Knight Science Journalism fellowship program at MIT.
Most of APR‘s staff are award-winning journalists despite not being recognized for awards by the Alabama Press Association due to arcane rules that exclude online-only journalists.
“We are exceptionally proud of all our staff at APR,” said Editor-in-Chief Bill Britt. “We are pleased that noted publications like The Washington Post and New York Times, as well as those at The Knight Science Journalism fellowship, recognized the professionalism of our journalists.”
