The Best in Investigative Business Journalism
November 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join Jim Steele and Dr. Jeffrey Timmermans in the First Amendment Forum on November 9th at 6pm inside ASU’s Cronkite School in Downtown Phoenix, for an in-depth conversation with award-winning investigative business journalists.
Gold winners from the 2022 Barlett and Steele Awards will discuss their extraordinary investigations, from the inspiration to the challenges and the impact their reporting had on the public. This year’s guests include a multi-media reporting team that uncovered the lackluster government oversight of the troubled-teen industry in Utah that allowed widespread abuse, a representative from the Star Tribune duo that documented the ways accident victims were convinced to transfer compensation to other parties for a fraction of its value, and the first-ever winner of the Outstanding Young Journalist award for his investigation into faulty mechanical heart pumps.
Watch the event live-streamed here.
