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.

Public infrastructure isn’t just bridges and water mains: Here’s an argument for extending the concept to digital spaces
“Our solutions cannot be limited to asking these platforms to do a better job of meeting their civic obligations — we need to consider what technologies we want and need for digital media to have a productive role in democratic societies.”

And hopefully to make some good TV along the way. Kary Antholis’ site Crime Story uses “a much more thematic, character-driven way of exploring these stories than how traditional media might pursue.”
