BusinessWeek's Dunham leaves for Houston Chronicle
Rick Dunham, who has been in BusinessWeek‘s Washington bureau for the past 15 years, is leaving the magazine to become the Houston Chronicle’s Washington bureau chief.
The move comes less than a month after the glossy named Jane Sasseen as its new DC bureau chief.
Dunham hasÂ been a senior writer covering the intersection of politics and policy in Washington. He joined BusinessWeek in 1992 after seven years as a national political reporter for the now-defunctÂ Dallas Times Herald.
“Rick has made a name for himself as an enterprising and creative journalist in both magazines and newspapers,’ said Jeff Cohen, editor of the Chronicle, in a release. “He’s filled with tremendous ideas about Washington coverage for a regional news organization, and I predict you’ll see a lively report in the newspaper and on chron.com.”
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history, Dunham has been active in Washington journalism circles, having served as president of the National Press Club and chairman of The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. He lives in Arlington, Va., with his wife, Pam Tobey, a graphic artist at the Washington Post.
