Know More: Under-Reported Stories For The Week Of 10.17.15

  Reporters from the Pacific Northwest weigh in on stories from the week that they believe deserve more ink and analysis.

This week, KPLU's Sound Effect hears from members of Seattlish who describe their blog as a place where you can read about "Seattle, politics, drinking, obscenities and cute animals... brought to you by a trio of mouthy broads.”

This week's choices for under reported stories include the People's Climate March which took place in Seattle, a federal investigation into unsafe conditions at Western State Hospital; and issues surrounding sales of city land in Seattle and the money and vision, or lack of vision, that goes into that.

Before accepting the position of News Director in 1996, she spent five years as knkx's All Things Considered Host and filed news stories for knkx and NPR. Erin is a native of Spokane and a graduate of the University of Washington and London's City University - Center for Journalism Studies.
