A Retrospect of Journalism: What Happened to the Washington Reporters?

In his latest book, Whatever Happened to the Washington Reporters, 1978-2012, Stephen Hess set out to find the 450 Washington reporters he first surveyed in 1978. He tracks them in France, England, Italy, Australia, and 19 U.S. states in addition to the Washington area, locating 90 percent and interviews 283 of them, producing the first comprehensive study of career patterns in American journalism.
