A group of investigative reporters will examine on TV why so many homicides go unsolved --- particularly in the African-American community.

"Aftermath: Unsolved Murders in the Black Community" is a one-hour discussion program that will be hosted by longtime TV and radio personality Chris Moore. The program will air at 8 p.m. Feb. 4 on Pittsburgh's WQED-TV (13) and be re-broadcast at 12:30 p.m. Feb. 7.

The show is being developed in partnership between WQED, radio station WESA-FM (90.5), the New Pittsburgh Courier and PublicSource, a non-profit journalism project.

Content will also be available online at www.wqed.org/aftermath.

Guests will include reporters Jeffrey Benzing of PublicSource, Megan Harris of WESA and Ashley Johnson of the Courier, along with Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr., Pittsburgh police Commander Vic Joseph, and Valerie Dixon, executive director of the Prevent Another Crime Today, or P.A.C.T., Initiative, which aims to help authorities solve murders.
