Tognolli is a Brazilian member at International Consortium of Investigative Journalism and has worked for 13 years as founding-director for www.abraji.org.br.[citation needed]

He started his career of reporter at Veja magazine. He followed with work on the newspapers Folha de S.

We was co-founder of the news site www.brasil247.com, and left two years after.[citation needed]

Claudio started to study music, jazz, rock, country and classical guitar very young with Marcus Rampazzo and Hans-Joachimm Koellreutter.

He has travelled to more than 35 countries to make special investigations. He has achieved the biggest prizes in journalism, like Grande Prêmio Folha, Prêmio Jabuti and Prêmio Esso.[citation needed]

From 2011 to 2014 two of his 12 books have made it to the top of the bestsellers list in Brazil: a biography of rock singer Lobão and a biography of a former Brazilian secretary of justice.[citation needed]

His latest book, Assassinato de Reputações, released on 11 December 2014, has sold in 4 months 120,000,00 copies. And it is on the first place of bestsellers from the Veja magazine for 15 weeks. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism quoted the book as one of the most important journalism pieces in the world.[5]

On 15 April 2014, Tognolli was hired by Yahoo! to keep an investigative journalism blog there.

In July 2014, Tognolli was upgraded at University de São Paulo (USP) to "professor associado" (livre-docente), or Phd teacher, due to his studies on methodology of journalism. His investigation thesis was a book about the life of Francisco Bocayuva Catão, to be published in 2015. Catão, one of the richest men in Brazil, had one of his exportation ports, at Bahia, confiscated by the military government after former Brazilian president, Juscelino Kubitschek, announced in 1965 in Paris that Catão was the true civil candidate for presidential election in that year. Tognolli's book will reveal untold stories about 1964's Coup D'État in Brazil, mainly because Catão was Vernon A. Walters's best friend in Brazil.[citation needed]
