On the Record: Nov. 20, 2020


In this episode of “On the Record” host Eleanor Hildebrandt and co-producer Hailey Marx sat down with DI reporters to get an in-depth look at their stories and talk this week’s headlines.

Brian Grace, a news reporter covering local government, discusses his story on a racial-equity report card the City of Iowa City released comparing data from 2015 and 2019. This report showed a decrease in juvenile charges, but an increase in traffic stops. News editor Rachel Schilke discusses a story she worked on about increases in COVID-19 hospitalizations in Iowa. Hospital beds are quickly filling up as COVID-19 cases continue to increase and medical professionals are urging Iowans to continue following coronavirus mitigation guidelines. Finally, news reporter covering higher education Sabine Martin discusses her in-depth story on the Regent Admissions Index that the three public universities in Iowa use for admissions. This admissions index does not take high school extracurricular activities into consideration.
