Two Reveal collaborations are finalists for the 2015 Scripps Howard Awards, which honor journalism that helps improve people’s lives.
Rape on the Night Shift, an investigation into sexual assault of women in the janitorial industry, is a finalist in the television/cable in-depth national and international coverage category.
The documentary explored how, under the cover of darkness, female janitors across the country were being raped and assaulted, sometimes with little recourse. It was a collaboration between Reveal, the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley, KQED, FRONTLINE and Univision.
A Mountain of Misconduct, which looked into abuse and neglect at specialty rehab centers for people with disabilities, is a finalist in the radio in-depth coverage category. The story aired on more than 230 stations on Reveal’s radio show, which is produced with PRX.
Reveal’s Laura Starecheski and New Hampshire Public Radio’s Jack Rodolico told the story of allegations of patient abuse and corruption at Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center in New Hampshire and exposed questionable care at brain injury rehab centers around the country.
Winners will be recognized at an awards banquet in Phoenix on April 28.
