WASHINGTON (Feb. 14, 2013)—The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) congratulates NABJ's national Student Representative Wesley Lowery on being named a metro reporter at The Boston Globe.

Lowery is currently a reporting fellow at the Los Angeles Times as part of the METPROTraining Program, where he has covered breaking news and aided that paper's coverage of President Obama's inauguration, the Grammy Awards, and most recently, the search for Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer, who authorities say went on a bloody rampage killing four people.

Wesley previously interned at The Globe, The Wall Street Journal, The Columbus Post Dispatch, and The Detroit News. He is also an alum of both the NABJ and UNITYStudent Projects program.

"Wesley is one of the finest young reporters I've come across. He has solid reporting skills, a dogged determination, good instincts, and a strong ethical compass," said Gregory Lee, Jr., NABJ President and Executive Sports Editor at The South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Wes is also a natural leader who has served NABJ and its student members well. He is sure to make a big mark on our industry in the years to come. I look forward to seeing his career progress."

A 2012 graduate of Ohio University, he served as editor-in-chief of The Post, OU's student newspaper.

NABJ wishes Wesley much success on his new role.

An advocacy group established in 1975 in Washington, D.C., NABJ is the largest organization for journalists of color in the nation, and provides career development as well as educational and other support to its members worldwide.
