As newsrooms across the country are forced to cut staff, strong investigative journalism can often be the first to take a hit. Join us in June for a discussion about the importance of investigative journalism with Chris Green, managing editor of the Kansas Leadership Center’s quarterly magazine, The Journal. One of its most recent issues took an in-depth look at the debate over guns and public safety.
Our monthly luncheon is from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 5 at Larkspur Bistro.
Green became managing editor of The Journal, the Kansas Leadership Center’s print magazine, in January 2013. During his tenure, he’s overseen the transition of the publication from a biannual to a quarterly, developed a network of contributors from across Kansas, launched an award-winning website in klcjournal.com and cultivated the magazine’s vibrant social media presence.
In recent years, the magazine has focused on providing in-depth coverage of some of the most important civic challenges facing Kansas. Those efforts received statewide recognition this year when The Journal won the Burton W. Marvin News Enterprise Award from the William Allen White Foundation and University of Kansas School of Journalism and Mass Communications for its 2018 investigation of the water issues facing western Kansas.
