Allbritton Journalism Institute Announces Hiring of Alex Roarty

Published

The Allbritton Journalism Institute (AJI) announced today the addition of Alex Roarty, an accomplished journalist with over a decade of experience covering Washington politics and campaigns.

Alex will be a reporter for the institute’s non-profit newsroom set to launch later this year. He brings with him an immense knowledge and sourcing base and will help mentor this year’s class of AJI fellows.

AJI is backed by a $20 million grant from Robert Allbritton, the founding publisher of Politico. The new non-profit organization and newsroom, staffed by veteran journalists, will train aspiring reporters to produce fact-based, non-partisan journalism on government and politics.

Alex comes to AJI from McClatchy newspapers, where he was a politics writer and White House correspondent, covering the Democratic Party and Joe Biden’s presidency. He was previously a senior politics reporter for Roll Call, focusing on congressional races, and was National Journal Hotline’s chief political correspondent.

Individuals and institutions who wish to support the institute’s work should contact Rachel Hirschberg at rachel@bhstrategiesllc.com.
