KARE 11 today announced the launch of a new episodic true-crime podcast in association with VAULT Studios. The project chronicles the days surrounding the Jayme Closs investigation.
88 DAYS: THE JAYME CLOSS STORY is hosted by Emmy Award-winning KARE 11 reporter Lou Raguse and co-produced by KARE 11’s Ellie Coatar.
The podcast spotlights the story of an innocent couple murdered in a small Wisconsin town and their 13-year-old daughter who vanished without a trace. Raguse and Coatar bring listeners inside the case each week, offering a fresh perspective on the 3-month investigation including in-depth interviews, analysis and how the case unfolded.
“Podcasts like 88 DAYS offer a platform for our journalists to explore a topic as deeply as necessary to get the full story, share additional perspectives, and introduce new information,” said Stuart Boslow, KARE 11 Director of Content.
“The Jayme Close case had a profound impact on me as I covered it for 88 days and beyond,” says Raguse. “It was unlike any story I’ve ever worked on. Now, I am eager to share the twists and turns and the Barron community’s message of hope in this format.”
88 DAYS: THE JAYME CLOSS STORY will release three episodes on August 6th and the following episodes on Tuesdays. All episodes will be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and all major listening platforms.
