Mark Greenblatt, an investigative journalist for Scripps News, has been named as executive editor of the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Greenblatt succeeds Maud Beelman, the former Associated Press investigations editor who has served as founding executive editor of the Howard Center since 2019.
“The Howard Center for Investigative Journalism at ASU has achieved a great deal under the leadership of Maud Beelman. We are now ready to write the next chapters in the history of this wonderful program,” say Cronkite School Dean Battinto L. Batts Jr.
Greenblatt has won three Peabody awards, the duPont-Columbia Award, the IRE Medal, the Livingston Award, multiple national Edward R. Murrow Awards and the national Emmy for investigative reporting.
“Over the last decade, Mark has led multiple award-winning projects for Scripps,” says Kate O’Brian, president of Scripps News. “His reports have led to changes in laws at many levels of government.”
Prior to joining Scripps, Greenblatt served as a national correspondent for ABC News and in investigative reporter roles for KHOU in Houston, WBBH in Fort Myers and Naples, Florida, and KOAA in Pueblo and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
