The Center for Investigative Reporting is partnering with PRX to produce a pilot for a radio show called Reveal. The hour-long show will focus on investigative reporting and the behind-the-scenes process of producing it. The pilot will air Sept. 28 on radio stations around the country. From CIR:

We know that the public cares about deeply reported stories that hold the powerful accountable and give voice to the voiceless. But too often, those stories come and go, and the public is left with questions: How did the story come about? What happened as a result? What’s the next step?

As we know, there is always more to the story.

“Reveal” will take listeners behind the scenes of investigations in progress, break national investigative stories and follow up on the impact and changes that result.

The pilot episode will break a big new national story, look into a new policing technology and much more. Its website will feature data apps, video and other ways for listeners to dive more deeply into the stories.

The collaboration began this summer: PRX provides the radio know-how, CIR supplies the investigative reporting. As PRX’s John Barth told Current, “We both came to the same realization that there is a gap around consistent investigative journalism in public radio.”

If the pilot is successful and stations show an interest, CIR and PRX plan to have the show ready to debut in 2014.

Plus: All misinformation is local; a very specific kind of Covid-19 misinformation in Facebook parent groups; and “religious clickbait.”
In the arena: Ken Doctor is moving from “media analyst” to “media CEO” with Lookout, his plan for quality local news
Lookout doesn’t want its local news sites to be a supplement or alternative to the local daily. They aim to be the news source of record in their communities, outgunning their shrunken newsprint rivals from Day 1.
People who engage with false news are hyper-concerned about truth. But they think it’s being hidden.
