Former Philadelphia Daily News reporter Regina Medina, laid off in a round of cuts at the paper in November, has started a new job. She’s now a Disability Investigator with the City Controller’s Office.
Although the positions is technically outside the media industry, she’ll be making use of the journalism skills she honed during her more than 20-year newspaper career.
“I will be doing more than just disability fraud claims,” she tells Media Moves. “I will be more of a utility player working with investigations, writing and some media.”
Regina ended her run at the Daily News in December after 16 years. She started the new job January 8.
