J. Carl Ganter (MSJ91)

When I speak to young journalists, I share the best advice I learned at Medill: Find good mentors who will challenge you and continue to light and nurture your curiosity. And there are so many — thank you Abe Peck, David Protess, Charles Whitaker, and all. Still the best day in my career was watching David Dowaliby walk free from Stateville Correctional Center after Protess, Rob Warden, Paul Hogan (NBC5), and I worked for more than a year on his wrongful conviction case.
