Twenty years ago, the Northwestern News Network was nothing more than an idea in Linton Johnson’s (BSJ95) head. But in the fall of 1993, he, Mary-Jo Lipman (BSJ95), Aimee Nuzzo (BSJ95) and a handful of other students brought NNN to life. Twenty years later, some of the founding members provide an oral history of the first year of NNN as part of Medill’s Magazine’s special NNN section. Plus, hear from a collection of alumni about their favorite NNN memories and how NNN helped prepare them for success after college.

Also in this issue, go behind-the-scenes with Rance Crain (BSJ60) as he gets inducted into the American Advertising Federation’s Hall of Fame, learn why Marcela Aguilar (IMC02) was named to Advertising Age’s list of “Women to Watch” in 2013, get a glimpse of a day in the life of Melina Kolb (MSJ09) as she finishes her documentary on Sue Duncan – the mother of Secretary of Education Arne Duncan – and find out what it is like to live and work in Dallas.

Read those stories and more in Issue 85 of the Medill Magazine.
