While 2020 brought unforeseen firsts and instability to everyone's life, one thing remained true the entire year — there was always a story to tell.

Historic protests for social justice, a contentious presidential election and a deadly pandemic brought new challenges to delivering the news to southeast Wisconsin but the staff at WUWM 89.7 FM – Milwaukee's NPR worked day, and many times night, to keep communities informed.

WUWM has been recognized for that work and has won awards for:

Edward R. Murrow Radio Television Digital News Association Regional Awards

Hearken's Champion of Curiosity Awards

  • Best Collaboration Between Organizations - Listen MKE
  • Honorable Mention for Community Listening in a Crisis - Bubbler Talk

Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association Awards

Milwaukee Press Club Awards

Public Media Journalists Association Awards

Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Awards

From 2020 to 2021, Jack was WUWM's digital intern and then digital producer.
