Will Brown
Senior Reporter

“To make ends meet in the digital age, many media outlets are turning to sensationalised clickbait and comment articles designed to outrage and polarise. Tortoise is breaking through that noise, offering rigorous, quality reporting that takes a story the extra mile.”

Before Tortoise, Will Brown worked as the Telegraph’s Africa Bureau Chief in Nairobi, the Economist’s West Africa Correspondent in Dakar and a freelance journalist in New Delhi. In 2020, he won Young Journalist of the Year at the Press Awards for his work on conflicts in the Sahel, Ethiopia and DR Congo. In 2021, he was awarded “Outstanding Investigative Reporting” by the Fetisov Journalism Awards for a series of articles exposing how hundreds of African migrants had been chained, starved or left to die in Saudi Arabia’s covid detention centres. He is also a Senior Associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington DC.
