Dr. Loren Ghiglione was a Professor of Northwestern University and former Dean of the Medill School of Journalism. He has directed two other journalism program and owned and operated New England newspapers. Additionally, Ghiglione served as president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and as a Pulitzer Prize juror. He has written or edited six books on journalism. His biography of CBS correspondent Don Hollenbeck and his collection of Hollenbeck's "CBS Views the Press" radio broadcasts of media criticism were published in 2008. His Hollenbeck biography was a finalist for the 2009 Tankard Book Award, the Ann Sperber Biography Award, and the Frank Luther Mott-Kappa Tau Alpha Book Award. Ghiglione's teaching philosophy is based on his hope that he can help students learn to think and learn how to learn, and not just about writing and storytelling artfully and ethically for multiple media. The best journalists are eager to learn about the world, always attempting to diminish their ignorance about cities and cultures, history and humanity.
