Pulitzer prize-winning reporter says newspapers may be dying, but journalism is not

Bryan Gruley is an award-winning mystery writer and a Pulitzer prize-winning reporter - and he's delivering the annual Jeff Cole memorial lecture at the University of Montana this evening. Gruley is now a feature reporter for Bloomberg News, after working many years for the Wall Street Journal. He was part of a team of Journal reporters who won the Pulitzer for their coverage of the 9/11 attacks.

In this feature interview, Gruley talks with News Director Sally Mauk about the enormous changes in the journalism profession - and about the challenges of covering 9/11.

"You don't want your motto to be 'always first, frequently right'. You want to be right."

  [ Journalist Bryan Gruley will give the annual Cole lecture Monday evening, March 24th, at seven o'clock in the University Center theater on the University of Montana campus. His talk is titled "Confessions of a Dinosaur: All That Matters is the Story", and it is free and open to the public.]

Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
