Ellen Weiss, the National Public Radio senior vice president for News who resigned in January after negative feedback from her firing of NPR talk show host Juan Williams, has a new position at the Center for Public Integrity. Weiss is to be executive editor and charged with guiding domestic investigative stories and editorial staff.

The Center for Public Integrity describes itself as a “nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative news organization.” Former NPR News VP Bill Buzenberg runs the organization.

Buzenberg, executive director, said, “I know the center will gain enormously from her knowledge of investigative reporting and digital media.”
