September 02, 2014

Fox Radio News White House reporter Mike Majchrowitz died recently after losing a fight with cancer.  Mike was a 1985 graduate of the College of Mass Communication and Media Arts.  While attending SIU he worked at WSIU-TV, WSIU Radio, WIDB, and The Daily Egyptian.  

With respect to Mike Majchrowitz's professionalism, Radio, Television, and Digital Media Senior Lecturer Joey Helleny states, "Despite being in a very competitive environment, Mac was apparently well liked by everyone in the White House press corps. Colleagues say he was a tenacious reporter but kind to everyone. He was especially skilled at using sound to bring the listener to the scene of the story. He was a great representation of what we try to instill in our students."
