The following excerpt was sent out from City Limits:
City Limits, an award-winning nonprofit newsroom that’s been covering New York City for nearly half a century, announced Thursday the promotion of reporter Emma Whitford to Deputy Editor. In her new role, Whitford will spearhead the organization’s hard-hitting housing and homelessness coverage.
Whitford, who joined City Limits as Senior Housing Reporter in February, will continue to report for the news site’s core housing beat and will serve as editor for its series on NYCHA, launched earlier this year to provide in-depth coverage of the nation’s largest public housing system.
Before joining City Limits, Whitford was a senior reporter for Law360, where she covered housing and real estate, including reporting on New York housing courts and the state’s handling of its pandemic rent relief program. Whitford was previously a reporter at Gothamist and has freelanced extensively, with bylines in the New York Daily News, The Intercept, Curbed, TIME, Documented NY and the Queens Daily Eagle.
