Joshua Irvine reports on poverty for the Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Iowa. A recent graduate of Northwestern University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, he’s lived in a few places but will tell you that he grew up outside Chicago. Irvine was a freelance reporter for the Chicago Tribune’s suburban publications, covering municipal government and local school boards. He has reported for Windy City Times, which serves the LGBTQ community, and was a copy editing intern at the Tampa Bay Times.
The Telegraph Herald news site and paper, published six days a week, is the nearly-exclusive news source in the Dubuque tri-state area (Dubuque, Iowa sits on the border of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin). Its mission is to connect the community with high quality journalism, and as a locally-and independently-owned news organization, it takes its role in the community seriously.
