Allison Dikanovic joined WUWM in May 2019 as a volunteer producer for Lake Effect.
She is a reporter for the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service where she covers local news in Milwaukee’s central city and focuses on issues related to criminal justice and incarceration. Her multimedia series on human trafficking in Milwaukee won a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and her writing has been published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Associated Press and the Solutions Journalism Network.
One of Allison's favorite Milwaukee experiences was getting to work with students from Urban Underground to create Youth Rise MKE, a digital magazine project that elevated youth voices. She holds a degree in international affairs and journalism from Marquette University.
