Can I ask that this journalist be a colleague/mentor of the reporter I'm building currently?

I don't see why he couldn't be. Still not sure what paper he'll be from - side note.

Journo's switch tabloids like you and I change undies. If you go down that route as mentor or colleague it could have been anywhere either in the US or even with a syndicated network like NewsCorp. Murdoch controls about 65% of the Western worlds newspapers; he'd only have to work for one of them to be in touch with other journalists across the world. For example we have a guy here who writes regularly in our Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' but he is based in NY.
