Episode details

Brad Edwards is an investigative reporter and main anchor at CBS 2 Chicago. Brad's work has netted more than 100 awards: including eight consecutive regional Emmy Awards for News Writing [2003-’10], nine Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, including three at WBBM for Excellence in Writing – 2013, 2019 & 2020, six regional Emmy awards in 2019, including Best Investigative News Report and Best Hard News Report.   Brad's work has led to new policies, and prosecutions; it has reunited families, and helped free a woman serving a 50-year prison sentence for a crime she didn’t commit. In Detroit, his year-long exposé into the Wayne County morgue led to the burial of dozens of indigent souls, and the fast-tracking of funding for a massive facility expansion.   On this episode, we discuss with Brad how he became a CBS award-winning reporter and what challenges he faced along the way.
