Michigan Radio’s investigative reporter Lindsey Smith will speak to Capitol Issues Forum Wednesday Feb. 21 from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. on stories she’s covered recently, including the Michigan State University sexual harassment scandal, lead levels in Michigan’s drinking water and the controversial Line 5 oil pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac.
Smith’s 2015 documentary on the Flint Water Crisis, “Not Safe to Drink,” earned the station a national Edward R. Murrow Award, along with other recognition. In 2014, Smith was named “Young Journalist of the Year” by the Detroit Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. She is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University and Specs Howard School of Media Arts.
