'Dying Words': The AIDS reporting of Jeffrey Schmalz

Jun 8, 2016

The KSUT Sunday Special honors Pride Month with a documentary about the New York Times reporter, who died from a disease he covered as a journalist.

Join KSUT this Sunday afternoon at 5 for the hour-long documentary Dying Words, in honor of Pride Month.

Dying Words is about Jeffrey Schmalz, a reporter for the New York Times in the early 1990s who covered the AIDS epidemic.

Schmalz wrote a series of stories that chronicled the devastation that AIDS wrought on its victims and those close to them. Meanwhile, he was dying from the disease himself.

Dying Words is hosted by Rachel Maddow, and features archival interview audio from Schmalz from 1993.

Hear it this Sunday afternoon (June 12) on the KSUT Sunday Special.
