Reuters hires Roston from BuzzFeed
Mary Milliken, U.S. foreign policy editor at Reuters, sent out the following announcement:
We are pleased to announce that Aram Roston is joining Reuters in Washington as a national security reporter with a focus on U.S. intelligence, starting on January 21 and reporting to Mary Milliken.
Aram brings to Reuters an impressive record as an investigative reporter – in digital, print and television – and we will deploy him on in-depth stories and projects around the most urgent issues for our global audience. Aram joins us from BuzzFeed News in Washington, where he worked as an investigative reporter for the last five years and produced groundbreaking stories on national security and international affairs, including a recent investigation into former American soldiers hired by the UAE to kill political enemies.
Aram has been recognized with the 2016 Howard Scripps Investigative Journalist Award, the 2011 Investigative Reporters and Editors Award and the 2010 Daniel Pearl Award for Outstanding International Investigative Reporting. Aram also has two Emmy Awards to his name, from his time at NBC News’ Investigative Unit, where he produced stories on Halliburton in Iraq, the Iraq war, Afghanistan and detainee abuse. Many in Washington know Aram for his 2008 investigative book on Ahmad Chalabi, the man famous for his role in pushing America to war in Iraq.
Please join us in giving Aram a hearty welcome to Reuters.
