Wednesday, March 5th Plenary Speaker
"Why did it take 13 years to Convict America’s Dad?"

Nicki Egan is an award-winning journalist, author (Chasing Cosby) and former People magazine senior writer who was the first reporter in the country to dig deeply into the Bill Cosby scandal in 2005 when other reporters shied away. Starting from scratch she was able to quickly become sourced and began breaking exclusive stories. When the scandal bubbled up again in October 2014 she was able to quickly reconnect with those victims and sources and began breaking exclusive stories once again, including the news of Cosby’s arrest on Dec. 30, 2015. She continues to get interviews with accusers who have never spoken and develop leads on new angles..

Accomplished investigative journalist with a history of uncovering wrongdoing by public officials and exposing inadequate laws that lead to legal reforms. First reporter to look into the Bill Cosby drugging and sexual assault scandal deeply in 2005 when others shied away.
