Our reporter Ben Markus, who was one of the first on the scene the night of the shooting, followed the case nearly every single day. Filing 20 long form features, 9 host/reporter 2-ways, and countless shorter newscast spots. The stories aired on both local and national broadcast. Just like the day of the shooting, NPR relied on Colorado Public Radio's talented staff, including reporter Megan Verlee, to cover the trial exclusively.
