UPDATE, June 12, 2014: This post updates the collaborators on the latest “Reveal” episode.
The radio show dedicated to investigative reporting is coming back to the airwaves! The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX will launch the third pilot episode of “Reveal” on June 28.
Airing on public radio stations all across the country, “Reveal” is a first-of-its-kind investigative radio show. Hosted by Al Letson of “State of the Re:Union,” “Reveal” won a Peabody Award this year for its first pilot episode featuring CIR’s segment on the overprescription of opiates to veterans by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
Our previous two pilot episodes have aired on over 150 stations across the country. Our new episode will feature an examination of accidents and equipment failures in the military, a collaborative investigation into U.S. water standards and a new exposé in CIR’s award-winning series on veterans issues. In short, another great episode filled with new, groundbreaking investigative reporting.
As in our first two pilots, we’ll have more collaboration from radio stations and media from across the country. Our latest episode will feature collaborations with The Center for Public Integrity, winner of a 2014 Pulitzer Prize; Michigan Radio; and St. Louis Public Radio.
