WWL-TV’s Anchor/Investigative Reporter Katie Moore is one of five finalists nominated for a National Emmy Award in Investigative Reporting for her series of stories about “The Man Behind the Warehouse.”
Moore’s three-part investigation took a deep dive into how more than 800 nursing home residents ended up in squalor in a Tangipahoa Parish warehouse after Hurricane Ida. Moore’s reporting has since contributed to the changing of laws regarding nursing homes’ evacuation plans that have to be filed with the Louisiana Department of Health, which regulates nursing homes and evacuations.
Winners will be presented live in New York City Wednesday, Sept. 27.
