Chron closes investigative unit
With Lance Williams' decision to take a job with Berkeley's Center for Investigative Reporting, the Chronicle is closing its investigative reporting unit. Williams was the last reporter left in the unit after the departures of Seth Rosenfeld and Susan Sward during the last round of layoffs. Deputy managing editor Steven Proctor told SF Weekly that there will be no replacement for Williams, and closing the unit was a financial decision.
