ProPublica's Paul Steiger to speak at UNC tonight

Posted by on Mon, Feb 20, 2012 at 11:23 AM

From fracking to foreclosures, Wall Street to presidential pardons, health care to the stimulus package: ProPublica, the independent nonprofit news organization, is reviving—and remaking—investigative journalism in America.

News junkies can get their fix this evening when Paul Steiger, editor-in-chief, CEO and president of ProPublica, will speak on the topic "From Mainstream Media to a Non-Profit News Startup."

The former managing editor of the Wall Street Journal, Steiger oversees a team of 34 journalists, many of whom have won national awards, including the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.

Steiger will speak tonight at Gerrard Hall on the UNC campus. The 6 p.m. lecture is free and open to the public.

Check back for the Indy's interview with Steiger and coverage of his lecture.
