Impressive UNR students, Fatal Encounters on the Brush Up
As part of help I am providing for a student-run online news infotainment show called "The Brush Up" at the University Nevada, Reno, Reynolds School, a special edition was just released called: "The Brush Up Interviews: Fatal Encounters with D. Brian Burghart". The report showcases two extremely talented journalism students.
The interviewer is Landon Miller, who at 17 already had his own radio show, and now as a senior is already working full-time as a reporter for the CBS affiliate in Reno.
The interviewee is D. Brian Burghart, a graduate student at the Reynolds School at UNR who merged school work, his own Reno News and Review and investigative acumen to come up with a much-needed database on people killed during interactions with law enforcement in the United States. During the interview he discusses motivation behind the Fatal Encounters website, its importance and also the ins and outs of sudden media success, including an appearance on the Daily Show (when sadly Jon Stewart was on vacation).
