Six months to do a story? Hardly. Hear from editors and reporters whose stories unfold at the speed of spot news. Learn how to tackle investigations based on breaking news without sacrificing daily coverage. Discover the benefits of rolling out stories in an ongoing investigation rather than waiting weeks or months to publish or go on air with all of the findings.
