Chronicle editor wins two more awards

MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle Editor Rob Golub won two awards from the Milwaukee Press Club in May, in the annual competition for media organizations from around the state.

The 2017 Milwaukee Press Club Awards for Excellence in Journalism were granted at the club’s annual “Gridiron” dinner, held at the InterContinental Hotel.

Golub won a silver award for Best Short Hard Feature Story (“Invisible ‘eruv’ perimeter will ease Shabbat rules”) and a bronze award for Best Column, for his Chronicle Editor’s Desk opinion articles.

“It’s so nice to be recognized for something I truly enjoy doing,” Golub said. “I get to do journalism and serve the Jewish community. I’m grateful.”

Megan Twohey, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times, spoke at the Gridiron banquet and answered Wisconsin journalists’ questions about her work. Twohey and another New York Times journalist, Jodi Kantor, have been credited with breaking the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal.

The emcees for the Gridiron banquet were Kathy Mykleby, reporter and co-anchor at WISN Channel 12 News, and Fraser Engerman, director of global media relations for Johnson Controls. The club also honored its 2018 Headliners, Gary Grunau, real estate developer, business and civic leader; and Juli Kaufmann, entrepreneur, developer and civic leader.

Golub also won two Milwaukee Press Club awards last year, bringing his total count over the last two years up to four awards in all.
