Philadelphia’s Wendy Ruderman Now Covering Police for New York Times


After more than a half a decade as the New York Times police headquarters bureau chief, Al Baker has vacated the mouse-infested reporters' “shack,” replaced by Wendy Ruderman, formerly of the Philadelphia Daily News, who won a 2010 Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on a corrupt narcotics unit in the Philadelphia Police Department, reports the New York Observer.

Ruderman's expose, “Tainted Justice,” co-written with Barbara Laker, resulted in an FBI probe and has been turned into a book, “Midnight in the City of Brotherly Love,” due next year from HarperCollins. Baker has moved to the public education beat. Joseph Goldstein continues covering the New York Police Department with Ruderman.
