Huddersfield Examiner seeks edge with new investigations reporter

Sarah Lagan
The Huddersfield Daily Examiner has created the
new job of investigations reporter.
The Trinity Mirror-owned weekly says the new post has been created to meet readers’ demands for more
hard edged, campaigning journalism.
Reporter Richard Porritt, 24, will now devote his time to researching
and writing in-depth stories to help strengthen the Examiner’s news
Porritt said: “I want to take a
much closer look at the issues that are really important to our
readers, and use the new Freedom of Information Act to discover things
some authorities might not want us to know. I think it is important
that local newspapers like the Examiner have the guts to hold people,
companies and authorities to account.
“I intend to do just that by asking the questions the man on the street
wants answered.”
