Investigative reporter gets a gig

The Center for Investigative Reporting received more than 600 applications for its new California Watch project. The winner, to be announced soon, is Lance Williams, who has been part of the San Francisco Chronicle's award-winning team breaking stories on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. Williams and partner Mark Fainaru-Wada wrote "Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports." Mark Katches was previously named to head the project and I'm told there are more staffers still to be named.
