Vice journalist Simon Ostrovsky joins CNN’s new investigative unit

Former Vice reporter Simon Ostrovsky has joined CNN’s new investigative unit, headed up by James Steele and Carl Bernstein.

In addition to his career as a filmmaker, he worked as a reporter for Vice, where he was captured in the Ukraine for three days, and reportedly beaten and interrogated.

“CNN needs to be an organization that breaks news, not just an organization that covers breaking news or talks about breaking news on television,” Andrew Morse, GM of CNN digital, said in the announcement about the new investigative unit. “There’s no better way to do that than to invest in investigative reporting.”
