William Hearst III Joins Center for Investigative Reporting

Another day, another board.

The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) has added William Hearst III to its board of directors.

Hearst is the chairman of Hearst’s board and the grandson of William Randolph Hearst.

“I worked with Will for many years at Hearst and witnessed first-hand how his deep roots in the media industry, endless sense of curiosity, courage to take risks in the name of good journalism, and his natural understanding of both business direction and media technologies inspired those who have worked for and with him,” said Phil Bronstein, executive chair of CIR’s board of directors, in a statement. “We look forward to seeing his imprint on our organization and are truly thrilled to welcome him to the CIR family.”
