Best local investigative reporter

»1. Lee Zurik
Before the Brow — Anthony Davis — there was the Brows: Lee Zurik. Old-timers (anyone here pre-Hurricane Katrina) may remember the then-boyish Zurik as the weekend sports dude on WWL-TV. After the storm, he gained fame for his ongoing investigations into then-Mayor Ray Nagin's administration's misuse of housing funds and became a local hero for challenging the official narratives of the supposed recovery. Since then, he's moved to WVUE-TV and become an anchor, but he still finds time for in-depth investigations that win national awards. Zurik is a genial, good guy — unless you're an elected official, and then "Lee Zurik on line one" is about the last thing you ever want to hear.
