Attend a Q&A with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and U of I alum Eli Murray

Tampa Bay Times journalist Eli Murray, a 2015 graduate of the University of Illinois journalism program, will be on campus for a question and answer session with Associate Professor Charles “Stretch” Ledford. Murray and two other journalists at the Tampa Bay Times were awarded a 2022 Pulitzer Prize for their six-part project “Poisoned,” an “exposé of highly toxic hazards inside Florida’s only battery recycling plant that forced the implementation of safety measures to adequately protect workers and nearby residents.”

You can attend the Q&A session in person or via Zoom from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13th.
