DePaul chapter hosts FOIA panel
By Liz Hansen
SPJ DePaul’s Freedom of Information Panel discussion on Feb. 16 offered tips on using FOIA requests and insight to how investigative journalists work.
The two-hour panel, moderated by DePaul adjunct journalism instructor and former TV news reporter Anne Kavanaugh, featured panelists Tim Novak and Chris Fusco of the Chicago Sun-Times and Mick Dumke of the Chicago Reader. The free event drew nearly 50 students and professional journalists at DePaul’s Daley Building.
Craig Newman of the Chicago Sun-Times archived live-tweets and background from the event in a Storify.
