Reporter Peter Zuckerman won the Livingston Award for his coverage of a pedophilia scandal within an Idaho Boy Scouts council (featured in this and last week’s EXPOSÉ: “In a Small Town”). At 26, he was one of the youngest journalists ever to win the award.
After winning the award, Zuckerman wrote up 10 tips for young journalists. Rule number 8: “Learn the secretary’s kids’ names and the janitor’s birthday. Secretaries who like you will go out of their way to get you access. So will janitors.”
