COLab journalist Susan Greene moderates a conversation with Niki Turner, owner/publisher/reporter of the Rio Blanco Herald Times and Priscilla Waggoner, journalist for the Alamosa Valley Courier and former editor of the Kiowa County Independent. The discussion centers about their projects “Through the Cracks” and “Three Bullets to the Back” – both stories about police killings in communities that preferred not to discuss them. What worked? What didn’t? What did they learn? How have their collaborations affected their coverage more generally?
Presented as part of the 2021 Joint Virtual Conference of the Colorado and Kansas Press Associations, May 20, 2021.
