INBA Podcast: Charlie Wheeler

Charlie Wheeler is a professor at the University of Illinois Springfield, where he is Director of the Public Affairs Reporting Program. He talks about his reporting career with the Chicago Sun-Times, how he got into journalism, the newspaper business, how the media has changed, why it's better to be right than fast, and advice for journalists. He was interviewed at the INBA fall 2018 conference in Springfield by Margaret Larkin.
