There’s a generational change taking place in the ranks of investigative reporters. Pulitzers and other top prizes are being won now by reporters who previously had to serve long apprenticeships before taking the lead in producing groundbreaking work.
New York Times reporter Ellen Gabler, ProPublica reporter Topher Sanders and University of Maryland grad and Wall Street Journal reporter Joe Palazzolo will talk about the changing investigative landscape, why they became project reporters and what they think the future can and should be for investigative journalism.
Gabler and Palazzolo are both Pulitzer winners; Sanders is a Pulitzer finalist and founder of the Ida B. Wells Society, which is dedicated to bringing more journalists of color into the investigative reporting ranks.
The panel will be moderated by Philip Merrill College of Journalism Dean Lucy A. Dalglish.
Please join us from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 9 in Knight Hall‘s Eaton Theater. Refreshments will be served.
