Jane Stone has worked over the past 17 years investigating everything from corporate negligence at Fortune 500 companies to bogus retirement homes to the trafficking in endangered species by the country's prestigious zoos. She has investigated dangerous abortion clinics, explored Pat Robertson's religious and political philosophy and profiled a dangerously overcrowded public hospital. The investigations have changed laws, shut down shoddy companies and increased workplace safety standards. They have also helped shed light on important public policy issues.
She has won three national Emmys, including one for Outstanding Investigative Journalism, three regional Emmys, an Ohio State Award, A DuPont-Columbia Award, a Peabody, and the Joan Shorenstein Barone Award for Excellence in National Affairs Reporting. She was a producer for 60 Minutes, West 57th, PBS Frontline, Dateline NBC and the CNN Special Assignment Unit. She also helped start Court TV, and in the last few years has developed a strong interest in legal journalism. She was recently awarded the American Bar Association Gavel Award for educating the public about important legal issues. Professor Stone continues to produce stories for Dateline NBC.
