Before you go …
If you like what you are reading and believe in independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan journalism like ours—journalism the way it should be—please contribute to keep us going. Reporting like this isn’t free to produce and we cannot do this alone. Thank you!
Carolina Public Press continues its celebration of 10 years of investigative and public interest journalism in North Carolina. In the fifth event in our free virtual Ten for NC series, CPP convened a panel of journalists to talk about reporting in North Carolina and the region.
The panel included Mara Shalhoup, ProPublica’s South Editor; Joe Neff, The Marshall Project staff writer; Ron Nixon, co-founder of the Ida B. Wells Society and currently the AP’s Global Investigations Editor; and Kate Martin, Lead Investigative Reporter, Carolina Public Press.
They explored the nuances, challenges and issues they face in doing the work in North Carolina, and in the region.

The event was sponsored by Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.
The Ten for NC series is designed to help readers go in-depth on issues and interests of North Carolinians.
