Karen Dillon has landed in Lawrence. The veteran investigative reporter has been hired by the Journal-World.
Dillon most recently freelanced for the Pitch, where she wrote several important stories, including how a Kansas City police officer accused of fatally shooting a Kansas City firefighter may have violated department regulations.
Dillon worked at The Star for more than 20 years before being laid off. She did a stint as a producer at KSHB earlier this year.
Dillon starts at the Journal-World Sept. 2.
