“I began my career as a TV reporter before moving on to eight years as a U.S. Congressman and now manage public policy for a law firm. Each step along the way Medill was crucial to my success. I learned one fundamental critical skill in then-spartan Fisk Hall: how to listen. Medill’s professors drilled it into me. Don’t make assumptions. Research carefully. Talk to all sides. Get the facts right. Only then can the storytelling begin. You know the old line. God gave you two ears and one mouth. In a shoot-from-the-hip era, listening is the rarest commodity of all. Thanks, Medill.”
