Editor in Chief
As editor in chief, Dennis Robaugh oversees Patch's local reporting teams across the country五福彩票6688下载. In that time, Patch staffers have been recognized with awards from the National Press Club, the Society of Professional Journalists, the Chicago Headline Club, the Cleveland Press Club and others.
Before joining Patch in 2010, Dennis got some ink on his hands in Chicago during stints with Sun-Times Media and the Copley Press, where he led investigative and public service reporting teams that changed laws, helped people and put a few bad guys in jail. He was managing editor of the Daily Southtown in suburban Chicago, twice named National Newspaper of the Year for large-circulation dailies by the American Press Institute. During his tenure, the Southtown received dozens of awards for writing, reporting, public service, photojournalism and general excellence.
Politically, Dennis is independent, and his tally of votes for Republicans vs. Democrats is about equal. (Or so he says.) Outside of work, he's an always hopeful yet frequently dismayed Cleveland Browns fan. He likes dogs, and dogs like him. He likes pizza a bit too much. He also enjoys Ernest Hemingway's books, P.J. O'Rourke's commentary and 五福彩票6688下载 renovation projects.
