Oklahoma Watch expands team with two new hires
Veteran journalists Ted Streuli and Mike Sherman will be joining Oklahoma Watch next month, reports City Sentinel.
Former Journal Record executive editor and associate publisher Streuli has been named Oklahoma Watch’s executive director, and Sherman will take on the role of executive editor. Previously, Sherman was with The Oklahoman.
“We’re excited to have Ted and Mike join Oklahoma Watch,” said Joe Hight, Oklahoma Watch Board Chair. “They are award-winning and nationally recognized journalists who care deeply about Oklahoma and the important investigative news stories published by Oklahoma Watch.”
Streuli has lived in Oklahoma since 2004. Prior to The Journal Record, he was president and executive director of Peaceful Family Solutions. Whereas, Sherman was deputy editor at The Tampa Bay Times before returning to Oklahoma.
Currently, he is the project manager for The Coronavirus Storytelling Project, a collaboration between three organizations, including Oklahoma Watch.
“The need for quality, investigative journalism grows daily with the announcement of additional layoffs and furloughs at local papers,” Hight said. “Oklahoma Watch offers investigative, fact-driven journalism, that examines significant issues facing our state. The work that Ted and Mike will do will lead to positive change.”
