A Growing Role for Investigative Journalism
October 4, 2012
Four of Texas’ top journalists—all Headliners Foundation award winners—shared their insights and best practices with students pursuing journalism and with fellow professionals at a September 15th panel sponsored by the Headliners Foundation. Panelists Debbie Hiott of the Austin American-Statesman, Terri Langford of the Houston Chronicle and Wayne Dolcefino of KTRK-Houston noted the increasing importance of exclusive investigative stories in an age when routine news has become a commodity. In the discussion moderated by Headliners Foundation Vice Chair Mark Morrison, the journalists also shared behind-the-scenes accounts of how they produce award-winning investigative projects.
