Dean Baquet on the Audience for Investigative Reporting

From a story on by Hanaa Tameez headlined “Dean Baquet: ‘The audience for investigative reporting is tremendous'”

If you have an idea for a local investigative project but need some extra time or support to work on it, Dean Baquet wants to help.

Baquet, who served as the executive editor of The New York Times from 2014 until this year, will lead its new local investigations fellowship program. At the Independent News Sustainability Summit on Thursday in Austin, Texas, Baquet talked about his plans for the pilot program, which will launch early next year.
