Reporter Chris Vanocur broke the story of international bribes and influence peddling embedded in the practices of the International Olympic Committee. Vanocur was the first to report that Salt Lake City's Organizing Committee made tuition payments to the daughter of a member of the International Olympic Committee in its effort to secure the 2002 winter games. That report triggered an international story covered for months by the media pack. Vanocur's reporting was original, aggressive and clear, as he worked sources around the denials of Salt Lake officials. He took on powerful hometown interests in a scandal that had worldwide repercussions, and he continued to report on the actions of local and state officials, even after the spotlight turned away from Utah.
