Investigate Midwest Acquires Iowa Watch

April 21, 2022

It's a big deal when it comes to reporting issues important to the world of agriculture and issues that impact the rural Midwest and Nation. Investigate Midwest has acquired IowaWatch and its team, bringing together a combined 25 years of public service journalism to Iowa and the Midwest.  IowaWatch (The Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism) will cease operations as a nonprofit and evolve into an expanded Iowa-based newsroom within Investigate Midwest (The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting) under an agreement approved this month by the boards of directors of both nonprofit organizations. Here we talk about what that means with Lyle Muller the former Executive Director of Iowa Watch and Pam Dempsey the Executive Director of Investigate Midwest. And you can help support their work by offering up a donation. To do that...just follow this link.
