KRQE Investigates Mission

We will dig deeper, we will ask the tough questions, we will hold the powerful accountable.

It is first and foremost good journalism. It is digging deeper than the competition. Demanding responsiveness from those involved in the story, and getting all sides of the story.

Empowering viewers by giving them a voice and getting them answers, explaining what the story means to the viewer and how it affects them.

Pursuing answers long after we have aired a story.
