11.5.19 – Using Journalism to Uncover the Truth

This semester, I am enrolled in Investigative Journalism through UF’s College of Journalism & Communications, taught by Harrison Hove. Through this course, I am learning to request and research public records to help tell investigative pieces. One of the main roles of journalism in our society is to serve as a watchdog for the public. These stories are able to hold people accountable for any corruption and uncover new information. Dolores Hinckley, Valerie Lyons & Zach Oliveri are three of my exceptional fellow journalists, working in this class alongside me. Dolores has previously helped cover stories for the Associated Press and Zach enjoys reporting on sports, such as the NCAA Tournament in Des Moines. I look forward to seeing all the stories my classmates and I are able to unearth and produce this semester!
