Laura Frank: The Future of Investigative Reporting
Brunch Program – Members and guests only – $13
Reservations before noon, March 5 : firstname.lastname@example.org
Laura Frank’s passion for investigative reporting only grew when the Rocky Mountain News folded. She left her job there to found the iNews Network, a non-profit organization that tells us what is really going on in our state.
With a small staff of veteran reporters, iNews develops in-depth reports and makes them available to newspapers, radio, and television stations all over Colorado. The local press is free to customize them for its own audiences. If you know about the state’s problems with online education, the frequency of local tornadoes, or Colorado employers caught withholding wages from their employees, you got it from iNews.
Don’t miss hearing this visionary woman when she speaks about the future of news.
Free parking in lot north of the house; $5 donation appreciated
