    On this episode, we’re joined by Ted Bridis, a professor of investigative journalism at the University of Florida.

    Ted had a long career as an investigative journalist and editor. His team won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting on NYPD intelligence programs. He and his teams have done prominent work related to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, and Paul Manafort and Rick Gates’ covert foreign lobbying.

    He was also part of the AP team that projected winners in 4 presidential elections, including 2016 (his call of Wisconsin made AP the first to project Trump would be president).

    And he was the administrator of the Collier Prize won by the reporting team from the Miami Herald.

    Ted talked both about his career, the traits that go into being a good investigative reporter, and the qualities of good investigative journalism work.

    On this episode of The Journalism Salute, we’re joined by Carol Marbin Miller and Daniel Chang of The Miami Herald. With additional assistance from ProPublica, they produced a 5-part series published in April 2021 – Birth and Betrayal. This was about a Florida government program that was intended to help families of children who suffered catastrophic brain injuries at birth. But the program did not work as intended.

    This piece – there were print and video components- just won The Collier Prize – a $25,000 journalism award focusing on investigative and political reporting on state governments.

    Daniel and Carol talked about the work that went into the piece, which took two years to complete. They explained the challenges they encountered, how they organized their work, and the lessons they've learned that allow for investigative reporting success.
