E&E News has hired new reporters to cover energy policy and mining and shifted seasoned reporters to expand critical beats for energy and environment issues in 2020 and beyond.
Arianna Skibell is the new energy policy reporter covering the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the electric grid and state energy battles for Energywire. Following a year of reporting in Israel through the Dorot Fellowship, she was a freelance reporter contributing to States Newsroom and Jewish Currents magazine, among other news outlets. She previously worked at E&E News from 2016 to 2018 covering federal regulations, climate change and Puerto Rico's recovery from Hurricane Maria.
James Marshall is the new mining reporter for Greenwire and E&E Daily after a successful stint as an E&E News fellow covering corporate sustainability, plastics and recycling. He previously covered Colorado’s congressional delegation for The Durango Herald.
Bringing honed investigative skills that have prompted congressional scrutiny on public health and environment issues, veteran E&E News reporter Corbin Hiar will now report on how business is responding to climate change for Climatewire. He will be examining businesses' policies compared with their actions and impact and profiling the key technologies and people to watch in emissions reduction, among other coverage.
Another veteran E&E News reporter, Ariel Wittenberg, will step in to apply her expertise in explaining the big-picture impact of abstruse regulations to the public health and environment beat for Greenwire and E&E Daily starting in early July. It is a skill she has used regularly as E&E News' water reporter for the past several years, as well as applied previously to transportation and defense issues. Her feature and explanatory stories on the Clean Water Act and Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule prompted congressional hearings and lawsuits.
