Ted Bridis, Investigative Reporting Professor, University of Florida

On this episode, we’re joined by Ted Bridis, a professor of investigative journalism at the University of Florida.

Ted had a long career as an investigative journalist and editor. His team won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting on NYPD intelligence programs. He and his teams have done prominent work related to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, and Paul Manafort and Rick Gates’ covert foreign lobbying.

He was also part of the AP team that projected winners in 4 presidential elections, including 2016 (his call of Wisconsin made AP the first to project Trump would be president).

And he was the administrator of the Collier Prize won by the reporting team from the Miami Herald.

Ted talked both about his career, the traits that go into being a good investigative reporter, and the qualities of good investigative journalism work.
