Third Thursday Lunches

Next Third Thursday:  April 18, 2019

Featured Speaker: Kate Howard

Investigative Reporting:
Why It Matters, and What It Takes

Kate Howard will talk you through the time, investment and vetting it takes
to make good investigative journalism — and why it’s more crucial now
than ever. She’ll share through the lens of a recent story about the disproportionate
number of black youth locked up in Louisville’s juvenile system.
Howard has been a journalist for more than 15 years at newspapers
including The Tennessean and the Omaha World-Herald.
She is managing editor of the Kentucky Center for Investigative
Reporting, a nonprofit investigative newsroom housed at 89.3 WFPL.
