Your Call: Pulitzer-winning investigations of black lung and homeless housing

  

On today’s  Your Call, it's our Friday Media Roundtable. We’ll have a conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning journalists. The Tampa Bay Times' Will Hobson and Michael La Forgia’s series exposed the Hillsborough County Homeless Recovery program’s inhumane treatment of its homeless population. The Center for Public Integrity’s Chris Hamby received the Pulitzer for his yearlong investigation into how doctors and lawyers worked with the coal industry to deny medical benefits to coal miners suffering from the deadly black lung disease. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Will Hobson, staff reporter at Tampa Bay Times in Florida

Michael LaForgia, a staff reporter at Tampa Bay Times in Florida
