The Story Behind “Follow The Truth” and Winning a Regional Murrow Award

“This project took 18 months to produce but has been in the making for almost 28 years, building on the work of many WRAL journalists who have covered this story since 1993. The Regional Murrow Award is an exceptional honor for our small, dedicated, talented podcast team who did not, and will not, quit in the pursuit of real justice.” 
Shelly Leslie, Head of WRAL Studios and Executive Producer

Follow The Truth, the first true crime podcast from WRAL Studios, recently won a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award from RTDNA.  General Manager of CBC Audience Development Shelly Leslie has penned a blog post about the honor and the podcast that earned it.

“Among the most prestigious awards in journalism, Murrow Award winning work demonstrates the excellence that Edward R. Murrow made a standard for the broadcast news profession,” she writes.  “What an honor for our team!”

Leslie outlines how her small team set out two years ago to tell the never-before-told complete version of the story: Who really killed Michael Jordan’s father?

Follow The Truth is the first narrative, true crime podcast produced by WRAL Studios, the original podcast production unit of WRAL and parent Capitol Broadcasting Company.
