Covering a Kidnapping: Reporting on the Murder of Yingying Zhang

Wednesday, 19 February, 2020 @ 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM | Cost:Free

In 2017, Chinese researcher Yingying Zhang disappeared from the University of Illinois campus in Urbana. Two years later, a former graduate student was convicted of kidnapping and killing her. The case drew media coverage in the United States and China, and Champaign News-Gazette reporter Ben Zigterman covered the story from its beginning.

In a conversation with EIU journalism instructor Joe Astrouski, Zigterman will discuss his experience covering this high-profile case and the lessons he learned along the way.
