SW@10: DeRienzo

Matt DeRienzo, Former Group Editor, Digital First Media Publications, Connecticut:

“Sunshine Week got us thinking about how to step back and really educate readers and public officials on Freedom of Information.

“This project accomplished that beyond our expectations, and ended up being a great piece of entrepreneurial journalism as well.”

Note: Read DeRienzo’s blog post detailing the results of the investigation, including how one department, which told a reporter, “You’ll never get blotter from us,” now makes its log available for public access.
