Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, April 17:
The Patriot-News was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Monday for the newspaper's coverage of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. Last March, reporter Sara Ganim was the first to report that the former Penn State defensive coach was under investigation for allegedly having inappropriate contact with a Clinton County boy several years ago. Sandusky was arrested in November after a Grand Jury handed down dozens of charges that he had sexually molested or raped nine boys over a period of years.
Ganim's stories consistently provided new information on the case, including remarks from mothers of two of the alleged victims.
At age 24, Ganim is the second youngest person to win a Pulitzer, which is considered journalism's most prestigious honor.
Appearing on Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk will be Patriot-News Editor David Newhouse.
Also, witf's Election 2012 coverage continues as we talk with Republican Pennsylvania Auditor General Candidate Frank Pinto. Pinto faces John Maher in the Republican primary on April 24. The winner will compete against Democrat Eugene DePasquale in the November election. DePasquale is unopposed in the primary. Both Maher and DePasquale currently serve in the State House of Representatives.
