Featured journalist: Christian McPhate
We're starting off the week by highlighting the impressive detective work of Dallas Observer Magazine's Christian McPhate, an award-winning reporter who also happens to be shaping young journalist minds at the University of North Texas. His coverage primarily has focused on the crime and justice beat, some samplings of which you'll find here in his Muck Rack portfolio -- we suggest you start with Denton's Scandal-Prone Sheriff (at nearly 4,000 shares!) or Adultery, a Love Child and Claims of a Police Conspiracy Heat Up Princeton (at close to 500). McPhate's work has appeared in alternative weeklies such as the Dallas Observer, Fort Worth Weekly and Houston Press as well as newspapers like the Dallas Morning News, Denton Record Chronicle and Fort Worth Star Telegram. As for the award-winning part, you can see a list of his accolades here!
