Public radio’s first investigative reporting series hits airwaves this weekend with the premiere of “Reveal.” This pilot is The Center for Investigative Reporting’s first foray into producing our own radio show, an effort made in collaboration with our partners at PRX – the digital and distribution powerhouse behind “The Moth Radio Hour,” “State of the Re:Union” and “WTF with Marc Maron.”
“Reveal” is a first-of-its-kind radio show that brings listeners deep into current investigations and captures the drama and high stakes of the reporting process. The show will break investigations from CIR and other news organizations from across the country and around the world. Impact will be a significant theme that will play into future episodes, as the broadcast reports to the audience what happened – or did not happen – as a result of the investigations.
The pilot will air on public radio stations around the country beginning today. Stay tuned – we’ll be updating you with a list of where you can hear it. And if it turns out the show isn’t broadcast in your area, make sure to let your local station know about it.
