Our old friend, former KSHB Channel 41 investigative reporter, Russ Ptacek is making some big noise in his new job as the chief investigative reporter for WUSA 9 in our nation's capital. Ptacek's investigation into sick and dead workers at the Bannister Federal Complex in KC has been mentioned during a congressional hearing. Minnesota Congressman Timothy Walz asked the GSA's Inspector General about toxins uncovered at the GSA regional headquarters building as well as a $234,000 PR contract to handle a "media crisis" - stories Ptacek uncovered while working in KC. There's a whole lot more, so check out Ptacek's reporting.
When Ptacek spoke with us in February prior to leaving, he wasn't sure if he'd be able to continue his investigation. Looks like we have our answer.
