IRE’s Don Bolles Medal Awarded to Slain Las Vegas Reporter Jeff German

From Investigative Reporters and Editors:

IRE’s Don Bolles Medal for 2023 has been awarded posthumously to Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German, who was killed in September 2022 in apparent retaliation for his reporting on a local public official.

The Don Bolles Medal recognizes investigative journalists who have exhibited extraordinary courage in standing up against intimidation or efforts to suppress the truth about matters of public importance.

“Jeff German was undaunted in his pursuit of accountability journalism,” said IRE President Mark Walker. “In recognizing him with the Don Bolles Medal, we honor his dedication to dogged persistence in the face of intimidation and hostility, and his fearless drive to get the job done.
