DescriptionIn just under two years the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism has broken over twenty-five major stories ranging from the increased dependence on immigrant labor in the dairy industry to the stories behind the alarmingly high Native American suicide rates. The two-person team led by executive director Andy Hall out of an office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication has also had its work picked up by numerous news organizations throughout the state including the La Crosse Tribune and WBAY-ABC in Green Bay.
