The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting’s masthead will undergo some alterations.

Blogger/reporter Howard Goodman — who has reported on the Trayvon Martin shooting, Florida’s voter restrictions and higher education spending, among other topics — will step down at the end of the week to pursue other opportunities.

Ashley Lopez, a former reporter/blogger for the now-defunct Florida Independent, will replace Goodman starting June 4. A Miami native, Lopez has interned for Talking Points Memo and an NPR affiliate in North Carolina. In addition to her duties at FCIR, Lopez will report for WLRN Miami Herald News, one of FCIR’s media partners.

Contributing Editor Tristram Korten, who most recently examined Gov. Rick Scott’s job creation claims and the costs to Florida to defend controversial new laws, will take a leave of absence this summer to accept a Knight-Wallace Fellowship at the University of Michigan.

    I’m in desperate need of speaking with an investigative reporter about a very serious situation. Please Google the Seth Adam’s shooting West Palm Beach then contact me. Seth Adam’s was murdered and I have the proof and I’m in desperate need of speaking with someone. This has been a massive cover-up. This is an incredibly serious situation I’m in desperate need of help. 321-419-6498
