Rob Golub, former chief editor of the daily newspaper in Racine, became editor of the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle in 2015.

Golub has three decades of experience in journalism, is an attorney, and is a longtime member of Congregation Sinai in Fox Point. Golub has spent much of his career working to responsibly engage audiences through community journalism.

The graduate of Yeshiva University’s Cardozo Law School resigned as editor of The Journal Times in Racine to accept the Chronicle position. At the Racine newspaper, Golub oversaw successful efforts to expand reach through social media and managed a department of 25 employees.

Golub held several different positions at The Journal Times over his 16 years there, including online editor, local editor and reporter. As local editor, Golub supervised news reporters.

Golub’s newsroom won several statewide awards during his tenure, including accolades for open records, breaking news, features and digital work. At the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, Golub has won multiple awards from the Milwaukee Press Club for his work. Golub won a first-place award from the Milwaukee Press Club in 2022, for Best Long Hard Feature Story.

For about 20 years, he has run an internship program that trains the young journalists of tomorrow. His “graduates” have gone on to work or intern at Facebook, CNN, Bloomberg, MSNBC and other news organizations around the world. They have also gone on to work or intern as highly effective and responsible community journalists.

Golub is originally from Long Island in New York, where he attended Hofstra University as an undergraduate, was on the executive board of Hillel and served as president of the traditionally Jewish Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. He is a former president of the board for NAMI-Wisconsin, the mental health advocacy organization.
