The series exposes how three brothers from this uncompromising corner of the gun debate are turning hot-button issues into donations and controversy, generating millions of virtual likes and follows as well as very real dollars. “No Compromise” originated as a podcast series and investigation by Lisa Hagen and Chris Haxel, in collaboration with NPR.
This summer, the show won a Pulitzer Prize for investigations. The broadcast audience for No Compromise will hear added content that tracks where the story has gone since the initial release. The six-part series is hosted by NPR’s Sarah McCammon, a veteran correspondent who covers America’s social and cultural divides. The broadcast series will include interviews with Lisa and Chris, as well as with reporters and others who cover tech, religion and the NRA.
“If you listened to No Compromise as a podcast, you’ll want to hear the newest information and the conversation led by Sarah McCammon” said WUSF General Manager JoAnn Urofsky.WUSF broadcast’s a few shows that made the transition from podcast to the radio world, including these:
