Neil Bedi - Investigative Reporter

Investigative Reporter

I am a reporter and developer working under the investigations team. I report stories, analyze data, develop news applications, design digital presentations, and occasionally take photographs. I focus on watchdog reporting. I've reported on problems at a revered local children’s hospital that led to an alarming death rat, a power plant accident that burned five to death, the starkly different circumstances in which black and white Floridians are shot by police and more. Feel free to reach out if you have a story I should look into.
