Covering the White House is considered by many to be the pinnacle of political journalism, and Medill has a long and storied history of churning out reporters who have made 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. their second home – at least for a few years. Four Medill alumni who are or have been White House correspondents discussed this coveted job, as well as the details and hard work that go hand-in-hand with the Oval Office beat. Plus, learn about a collection of alumni and faculty members who are or were involved in covering Presidential elections in the rest of the “Medill Press Corps” special section.
In addition to the special section, readers can get to know new Medill Dean Brad Hamm as he becomes the eighth dean in the school’s 91-year-old history, as well as learn about faculty member John Sullivan, who recently helped the Philadelphia Inquirer earn the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for public service.
Read those stories and more in Issue 82 of the Medill Magazine.
