Rita Aleman, executive producer for “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien,” a Hearst Television weekly political news magazine based in Washington, D.C., has been named the program manager of the Marquette Law School’s new Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education.
Aleman worked as executive producer for special projects at WISN-TV in Milwaukee from 2002 to 2016. In her new role, Aleman will work with colleagues at the Law School to create, organize and carry out events of the Lubar Center and extend the center’s reach, including an increased presence on the internet. Aleman is scheduled to begin work in January.
The Lubar Center is funded by a $7 million endowment from Milwaukee business and philanthropic leaders Sheldon and Marianne Lubar. More information can be found online.
