Dark Canyon: Sexual Abuse and Secrecy in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe
Story one of our special series aired live on KSFR’s Wake Up Call on September 19th. The airing of this first story reflects a nine-month process of research, interviewing and more research into both the practice of Catholic faith in northern New Mexico and the work done by other media outlets about the sexual abuse scandals in the U.S. Catholic Church. It also reflects my close collaboration with two fellow radio journalists, Hannah Colton and Rita Daniels, whom I brought in to participate with me in the creation of this series. It was downloaded more than 2000 times in the first week and has been heard digitally close to 5000 times in the first two weeks, in addition to the terrestrial listeners who tuned in as the story aired live.
