Brant Houston, Kevin Davis Discuss Nonprofit Investigative Journalism on Illinois Public Media

At a time when newsrooms are cutting their budgets for investigative journalism, nonprofit news organizations have an important role to fill. In-depth reporting is as important as ever for holding the powers that be accountable and investigative nonprofits are in a unique position to serve the public.

INN’s Board Chair Brant Houston and CEO Kevin Davis spoke to Craig Cohen at Illinois Public Media last week about the role of investigative nonprofits in journalism’s future. ProPublica’s Managing Editor Stephen Engelberg also joined the program to discuss his organization’s focus.

The full interview is available to stream or download on Illinois Public Media’s website.
