ICIJ Becomes an Independent Nonprofit

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists has spun off from the Center Public Integrity, the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit news organization that housed it for nearly 20 years. Known for its cross-border investigative collaborations, most notably the Panama Papers, ICIJ was in negotiations with the parent CPI for months to become an independent entity. "We believe this new structure will allow us to extend our global reach and impact even farther," wrote ICIJ Director Gerard Ryle.

CPI’s New CEO on Nonprofit News

Veteran journalist John Dunbar is taking over as CEO of the 27-year-old Center for Public Integrity, a GIJN member and a pioneer of nonprofit investigative journalism. Dunbar, who succeeds former CNN International VP Peter Bale, is bullish on the future of nonprofit newsrooms: "We don’t face the same harsh deadlines as other news organizations, so what we do is in-depth and serious and trustworthy... We have no advertisers. And our journalism is in demand by traditional news outlets... The best is truly yet to come."
