About Insight:

Nationally-recognized investigative journalist John Ferrugia, delves into some of the most pressing – and often unseen or misunderstood – issues facing Coloradans.

"Insight" is in-depth, independent and incisive. It’s public media storytelling at its best. And it’s the kind of journalism that inspires the public to make Colorado an even better place to live. John and a team of investigative journalists – including former national correspondent Lori Jane Gliha – present thoughtful, thoroughly researched stories of significance for Colorado. Sometimes the show has the feel of a Frontline-type documentary. Sometimes it includes extended Nightline-type interviews with the newsmakers who have the power to affect change.
