Investigative Reporter Jeremy Rogalski is a 20-year veteran of the KHOU 11 newsroom. His exclusive, in-depth reports hold the powerful accountable and give a voice to the voiceless. They have changed laws, sparked criminal prosecutions and helped countless Texans along the way.
Recent award-winning work includes an 11-part series that uncovered a botched recycling program at the City of Houston. Through surveillance video and a paper trail of public records, Rogalski revealed how 2.6 million pounds of recyclables were dumped at the landfill instead of processed correctly. A total of 68 city employees were disciplined as a result of the series, which was honored as the 2019 Best Television Investigative Report by the Headliners Foundation of Texas.
Other award-winning work includes “Transparency,” a 30-minute documentary that revealed how Houston’s $8 million police body camera program failed to deliver on its promises. From hundreds of missing videos to a deadly shooting not caught on tape, “Transparency” uncovered a lack of accountability at taxpayer expense. The documentary earned the prestigious Alfred I. duPont Columbia University Award, the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.
In 2014, Rogalski exposed a ticket-rigging scandal at the Houston Police Department, in which several police officers listed each other on speeding tickets when they were never there. City prosecutors dismissed thousands of tickets after the investigation aired. The series was recognized with an Investigative Reporters and Editors award.
Jeremy has earned 27 Lone Star regional Emmy awards and six Regional Edward R. Murrow awards in his career.
Jeremy is a graduate of DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., and a native Chicagoan, where he grew up in the left field bleachers of Wrigley Field. Go Cubs!
