A few months before our Huskers joined the Big Ten, we helped the good folks over at the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism relaunch the WordPress-powered wisconsinwatch.org. It’s one of a growing number of web-based investigative journalism sites that are springing up across the U.S.
The goal? To continue a great tradition of investigative reportage by professional journalists.
Led by Andy Hall, the good folks at Wisconsin Watch are doing some fantastic work. Recent stories have included looks at campus sexual assaults, immigrants on dairy farms and people freed by DNA testing.
We’re just as passionate about helping them push WordPress to its limits to help them accomplish their mission. Features of the revamped site include Facebook integration and password protected story downloads for media partners.
Some exciting upgrades are in the works over the coming weeks, but we’ll let Andy and Co. break the news.
