Huntington, Ind.— Award-winning investigative journalist Daniel Bice will present "Watchdogs in the Era of New Media" on March 9 at 7 p.m. at the Merillat Centre for the Arts at Huntington University. The presentation is the next in the University's Forester Lecture Series.
Bice is a columnist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. His work exposed secret gambling agreements, corrupt ministers, tribal campaign donations and bungled police investigations, earning him a national reputation as an accomplished political watchdog.
