A Face to Go with the Voice: Ben Mevorach


The intensity with which Long Island has been hit by the heroin crisis led to devote two months of resources to an immersive investigation into the epidemic. The station spent weeks on Long Island visiting treatment centers and interviewing law enforcement officials, current addicts, addiction specialists, public officials, pregnant women in recovery, families whose children are battling addiction, parents who have lost children to the drug, and addicts who have turned their lives around. The result was an eight-part digital series entitled, “Generation ‘H’: The Heroin Epidemic” which features our original reporting on the issue in a multimedia format with text, video, pictures, and a social media campaign to bring awareness to the crisis.

1010WINS News & Programming Director Ben Mevorach takes you behind the scenes of how it all came together, and how a newsroom is embracing social media to raise awareness.
