Current Radio Program:

The program interviews Laura Sullivan,  an NPR News investigative correspondent whose work has cast a light on some of the country’s most pressing criminological issues.

Sullivan joined NPR in 2004 as a correspondent on the National Desk. For six years she covered crime and punishment issues, with reports airing regularly on Morning EditionAll Things Considered and other NPR programs.

Over the years, Sullivan’s work has been honored by many of journalism’s highest awards, including two Peabody Awards and two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Batons.

The program addressed media coverage of crime and criminal justice issues and NPR’s commitment to criminological concerns.
