Hear from Alumnus Charlie Meyerson about his student experience at Illinois.

Charlie Meyerson’s the winner of dozens of journalism awards—including a national 2016 Edward R. Murrow Award for online audio investigative reporting and a 2018 Chicago Headline Club Award for best radio newscast. He rounds up the news daily via his email news briefing, Chicago Public Square—named by the Chicago Reader in 2022 the “best free daily roundup in your inbox.” His broadcasting career began at Illini Media’s WPGU-FM in Urbana, 1973-77, and he was a 2008 inductee into the Illini Media Alumni Hall of Fame.
