WGN Midday anchor and Medical Watch reporter Dina Bair received the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans’ Dante Award.
This special award goes to a local journalist each year.
Dante is known for issuing the challenge: Be “no timid friend to truth.”
WGN news director and former Dante Award winner Greg Caputo introduced Dina, and several other members from the WGN newsroom were there to support her.
The Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans is an independent, non-profit association.
It is dedicated to preserving Italian American heritage, and providing a unified voice for the Chicago area’s Italian American community.
