Earlier this month, the Milwaukee Press Club announced eight journalists who will be inducted into its 2019 Media Hall of Fame on Friday, Nov. 1.
Of the 2019 inductees, three come from Marquette:
Alan J. Borsuk, Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Marquette Law School
Borsuk is a senior fellow in law and public policy at the Law School. He writes for the Law School faculty blog about Law School programs and public policy issues. Borsuk also works on on Marquette Lawyer magazine and undertakes research projects related to public policy. He writes a weekly column about education, which appears on Sundays in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Meg Kissinger, Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Kissinger is a former O’Brien Fellow in the Diederich College of Communication. Her 2012-13 fellowship resulted in “Chronic Crisis: A System That Doesn’t Heal.” The series combined local, national and international reporting and drew the conclusion that Milwaukee County’s mental health system focuses less on continual care and more on emergency treatment than any in the nation.
Sharon McGowan, Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service
McGowan is former editor of the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service. Housed in the Diederich College of Communication, the MNNS is a nonprofit news organization that covers Milwaukee’s diverse neighborhoods.
The Nov. 1 event is open to the public and will be held in the Woodland Dreams Ballroom at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. More information or registration is online.
