Crux, an on-line Catholic news, analysis, and commentary service recently announced the addition of two new members to its journalistic team. Christopher White joins Crux as their new national correspondent, based in New York but also spending time in Washington, tracking the interplay between faith and public life – including the intersection between Pope Francis and President Donald Trump. Killian Chimtom is the new Africa correspondent, based in Cameroon but covering the whole continent.
“I’m pleased to announce the addition of these two stellar new members to the Crux family today,” said John L. Allen Jr. the editor of Crux. “White will be working both for Crux and the DeSales Media Group in the Diocese of Brooklyn, New York, where he’ll be contributing to NET TV (“New Evangelization Television”) and to the Tablet, their diocesan newspaper.”
“Killian Chimtom is a Cameroonian journalist with fourteen years of professional experience,” said Allen. “He currently serves as a reporter and news anchor for Cameroon Radio and Television, and contributes regularly to a number of other outlets, including IPS, Ooskanews, the Christian Science Monitor, CAJNews Africa, CNN.com, and DPA. Although based in Cameroon, Chimtom’s reach extends across the entire African continent.”
