The Big Impact of Small Town Reporting
Friday, April 01, 2011
Samantha Swindler is the managing editor of the Times-Tribune of Corbin, Kentucky (circulation 6,000). She says that while many reporters think they need to work at the New York Times to have an impact, investigative reporting in small communities can make a huge difference in people's lives. Swindler recently won the Institute for Rural Journalism’s Gish Award for “courage, integrity and tenacity in rural journalism.” She talks about investigative journalism in her community.
