The On Assignment podcast is brought to you by the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards. We went behind the scenes with some of the 2018 winning organizations—you can see the full list of 2018 winners here.

The duPont-Columbia Award for three separate reports from KARE 11 honors the station's commitment to investigative reporting, whether it be stories of bilking taxpayers, concealing child molesters or misdiagnosing veterans.

Reporter AJ Lagoe and Executive Producer Steve Eckert walk us through how they dig into some of their winning investigations. This reporting is a 2018 duPont-Columbia Award Winner.
