Some of the best journalists in the country gathered in Houston for this year’s Investigative Reporters and Editors conference.
The event was held last week. KPRC-2, our Graham Media Group station in Houston, hosted a meetup for corporate employees along with a social event called Treat Yo’ Self at Grotto downtown.
The mission of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) is to foster excellence in investigative journalism.
The team at KPRC welcomed the folks from Graham with some good old Southern hospitality and some truly excellent Texas BBQ.
The group had the chance to share its passion for investigative journalism with some of the other top reporters in the country. It was an opportunity to mix, mingle and more.
IRE was formed in 1975 to create a forum in which journalists throughout the world could help each other by sharing story ideas, newsgathering techniques and news sources.
IRE provides members access to thousands of reporting tip sheets and other materials through its resource center and hosts conferences and specialized training throughout the country.
