Reveal is a weekly, one-hour investigative reporting program from The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX. It was created as a monthly program in 2015 and launched as a weekly on over 200 stations in January 2016. The first pilot program won a Peabody Award. Award-winning producer Al Letson is the host of the show.
Reveal won a 2014 Peabody award for CIR’s original investigation into the Department of Veterans Affairs’ role in over-prescribing opioid drugs to returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. The story put pressure on the VA and, as a result, the federal agency has reformed some of its most egregious prescription practices.
