Most of Todd’s award-winning tenure came as a jack-of-all-trades newspaperman with publications in Northeastern Wisconsin after he cut his teeth as a sportswriter in his native Chicago area. Todd honed his craft as an effective and insightful storyteller by working 17 years for Gannett Company Inc., the largest newspaper publisher in the United States, starting as a sportswriter who covered the NFL’s Green Bay Packers for the Green Bay News-Chronicle, then branching out to report on all facets of a vibrant community as the editor of The De Pere Journal and, most recently, juggling assorted reporting duties in community news, education and sports with the Green Bay Press-Gazette. He earned numerous accolades from the Wisconsin Newspaper Association for reporting, editing, headline writing and publication layout.
