Everyone who writes news for a living dreams of the day when they can add the title of, “Award-Winning Investigative Journalist,” to their resume and business card. But very few of those who throw such titles around, ever put much on the line to earn it. Fewer still risk anything of significance, or their freedom to pursue a story of national importance. Those who do, sometimes win Pulitzer Prizes or Emmys for writing books, newspaper articles or broadcast journalism. But there is a rare breed, those who write content for newsmagazines and journals, who are eligible for another investigative journalism prize: the American Business Media's Timothy White Award for Editorial Integrity. Given only occasionally, the award acknowledges the challenges and pressures that editors face daily, and is presented at the annual Neal Awards ceremony to an editor whose work displays courage, integrity and passion. And this year, that award was given to Michael Fabey, the Naval Editor of Aviation Week & Space Technology (AW&ST – @AviationWeek).

This week, please join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern, as we proudly host Award-Winning Investigative Journalist Michael Fabey (@mfabey). Together they will tell Mike's amazing story of covering the U.S. Navy's troubled Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program, along with the challenges and threats he dealt with along the way. Harassed by contractors, stonewalled by Navy officials/leaders, Mike's coverage of the LCS program has not only exposed its many problems, but also changed the way the Navy deals with the media in general. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer their own questions and opinions to both gentlemen. This will be an exceptional hour about the pitfalls and challenges of modern day investigative journalism.
