True Crime Reporter™ Podcast
True Crime Reporter™ is an original true crime genre podcast based on three decades of reporting “real-life” stories by Peabody Award-Winning investigative reporter Robert Riggs. Riggs taps into three decades of criminal cases from his career as an investigative reporter and committee investigator in the U.S. Congress.
The first season of True Crime Reporter™ is currently being made into a television series titled Freed To Kill for a major streaming channel.
Former decorated federal prosecutor Bill Johnston teams up with Riggs to take listeners inside “the yellow crime scene tape”. Riggs and Johnston go where most true-crime podcast hosts have never dared to venture.
For more than four decades, this duo has been up close and personal with serial killers, mass murderers, sexual predators, and terrorists. You name it, and they’ve seen it from the crime scene to the courtroom, to prison, even the Texas’ death chamber.
Both are compelling storytellers. Riggs spent decades in front of the television news camera telling stories to millions of viewers. Federal juries returned guilty verdicts in every prosecution that Johnston undertook during his 14-year career with the U.S. Justice Department.
Riggs and Johnston’s true crime stories are stranger than fiction.
They take listeners on a “Journey Into Darkness”.
