For the third Reveal pilot, I once again took the whole format apart to experiment with long(er) form pieces and see what a more documentary-style show would sound like. The show featured three major investigations:
- GW Schulz on the US Coast Guard’s safety record
- David Heath’s investigation into the EPA’s inability to change drinking water standards
- Aaron Glantz’s look at how the for-profit education industry is reaping huge benefits from the GI Bill
For this show, I played a lead role in not just producing but also reporting and editing all the content for air.
And this third pilot was the most successful of the bunch, airing on over 200 public radio stations. Shortly after, the Center for Investigative Reporting announced $3.5 million in new funding to support production of the show.
