Introducing The FRONTLINE Dispatch

September 5, 2017

Some stories are meant to be heard. At FRONTLINE, we have been talking about bringing our journalism to audio for years. For storytellers and audiences alike, audio offers a special intimacy and transparency.

Today, I am pleased to introduce The FRONTLINE Dispatch — a new narrative podcast from FRONTLINE that expands our tradition of tough, fair reporting.

We are inviting you to subscribe to The FRONTLINE Dispatch first. This way, you won’t miss an episode as we explore complicated and surprising subjects.

Season 1 will examine issues like child marriage in America, second chances for juvenile offenders serving life sentences, a community divided over oil drilling and earthquakes, and more. These are original audio stories and will be told by reporters around the world.

Please listen to our trailer and subscribe to The FRONTLINE Dispatch today on Apple PodcastsStitcherRadioPublic or wherever you get your podcasts. We also invite you to sign up for a special newsletter to receive exclusive alerts when new episodes go live.

Thank you for listening!
