PULITZER-PRIZE WINNER WESLEY LOWERY NAMED CORRESPONDENT FOR "60 IN 6," THE NEW "60 MINUTES" PROGRAM TO LAUNCH ON QUIBI

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Wesley Lowery has been named correspondent for the new 60 MINUTES program 60 IN 6, Bill Owens, 60 MINUTES executive producer, announced today. 60 IN 6 will launch in the spring on the new mobile device streaming service Quibi.

An author and national correspondent for The Washington Post, Lowery has distinguished himself as one of the country's foremost journalists on race, law enforcement and justice.

He also has appeared regularly on CNN as a political contributor; his reporting and writing have been featured in The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Wall Street Journal, among other outlets.

"Wesley is an extremely talented writer and reporter who has covered many of the country's most important stories during his career," said Owens. "He's an unbelievable asset to our team."

"Each step of this journey realizes the dream I've had since grammar school - to report the news and tell stories that matter. To be a part of this innovative new platform adds another level of fulfillment for me as a journalist, and opens the door for me to master a new, vital type of storytelling," said Lowery.

Lowery led the "Fatal Force" project for The Washington Post which examined police shootings across the U.S., revealing patterns and creating an original database. The 2015 investigation won the Pulitzer Prize and the George Polk Award for national reporting.

Lowery is the author of They Can't Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore and a New Era in America's Racial Justice Movement. The best-seller was widely acclaimed and won the young reporter a Los Angeles Times book prize.

In 2012 Lowery was a reporting fellow at the Los Angeles Times, before joining The Boston Globe as a general assignment reporter and contributing to the paper's Pulitzer-Prize winning coverage of the Boston Marathon Bombing. He joined The Washington Post in 2014, the same year he was named emerging journalist of the year by the National Association of Black Journalists.

Lowery began his career in journalism at Ohio University, where he was editor-in-chief of the independent campus newspaper, The Post. During this period, he also served as an intern for The Detroit News, The Columbus Dispatch and The Wall Street Journal. Lowery earned his undergraduate degree from the university's E.W. Scripps School of Journalism.
