CHASING COSBY Wins The Best of the West - Audio Storytelling
The Los Angeles Times staff wins first place with the opening episode of “Chasing Cosby,” a podcast chronicling the rise and fall of Bill Cosby.
“Immersive and exceptionally reported,” the judge wrote. “This is a great pairing of story and medium, and a perfect pairing of print reporter and podcast host.
“Weisensee Egan’s superbly structured narrative navigates decades of material while raising timely questions about the criminal justice system and why the accounts of women are so often ignored. ‘Chasing Cosby’s’ expansive reporting footprint, exceptional use of archival sound, crisp original audio and judicious editing are an audio storytelling achievement.”
