Texas-based journalist and photographer Waylon Cunningham has been selected as the first fellow of the Sir Harry Evans Global Fellowship in Investigative Journalism at Reuters.

Cunningham – who is currently a reporter at the San Antonio Report – will receive a fellowship with Durham University beginning in early 2023 that involves pursuing a six-to-nine-month investigative project from inside the Reuters newsroom in London.  He will be mentored by top Reuters editors in the field and have access to Durham university academics and research resources.

Cunningham, 29, has published his work in the Los Angeles Times, the Austin Chronicle, the Texas Observer, the Liberty Hill Independent and the Maryville Daily Times.

His current beat at the San Antonio Report is business and technology.

He studied data science and new media storytelling at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism, where he was the 2020 Selden Ring Fellow for Investigative Journalism.
