Marge has been with WUWM since it changed formats from music to news and information in the late 1980s. Searching for a place where she could produce in-depth journalism, Marge was hired by WUWM as a reporter. For several years, Marge also hosted Morning Edition.
While a reporter, Marge was a frequent contributor to NPR and won numerous awards for her work.
Since fall of 2000, Marge has been managing the news department but still has the occasional opportunity to produce stories. Under her leadership, the team has won scores of professional awards, appeared on national broadcasts, trained dozens of interns and collaborated with organizations such as NPR, Milwaukee PBS and the International Center for Journalists, on a range of projects.
Prior to joining WUWM, Marge worked in commercial radio both as an afternoon news anchor and a field reporter. She also worked for short periods at a few TV stations.
