NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A huge congratulations for our FOX 8 Investigative team.

Lee Zurik and the team have been honored with a national award by the Investigative Reporters and Editors organization in recognition for our Medical Waste series.

The reports took a close look at the rising costs of prescription medications and questionable practices by the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.

One IRE judge says this was among the best, if not the best, investigation ever aired.
