Chris Satullo, the former WHYY radio news honcho who left the station last month, has landed in a familiar spot: At Penn.

The Annenberg Center for Public Policy at the University of Pennsylvania announced today that Satullo is joining as a “professional in residence” for the Spring 2016 semester. “He will work on a project involving the intersection of media and civic engagement,” the center said in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to have a distinguished journalist who has also made important contributions to civic engagement joining us and helping to think through new ways to involve citizens in public life,” Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, said in a statement

“I’m excited to have an opportunity to work for a while inside such a creative and powerful intellectual environment,” Satullo added.

This is the second time Satullo has landed on campus in his recent career. In 2006, he co-founded the Penn Project for Civic Engagement at the university.

Annenberg isn’t Satullo’s only gig these days, however. He’s also joined the Committee of 70 on a part-time basis as a “civic engagement consultant.”
