Press Pass: "This is the story of a lifetime"

Mar 24, 2020

"There's really only one story now," says Jim Heaney of Investigative Post. "And that's the virus." 

The new reality has prompted the news organization to alter its approach from a focus on long-term stories to multiple daily filings which detail how authorities are dealing with the pandemic.

Some examples include reporter Ali Ingersoll following the virtual proceedings in the local courts and Phil Gambini's review of the state's urgent need for additional ventilators to treat the crush of patients who will endure respiratory distress caused by COVID-19. 

"You're doing big stories, you're doing important stories and that's what it's all about as a journalist," Heaney said of his staff. "This is the story of a lifetime."
