| No Comments

WBBM-Channel 2 news director Jeff Kiernan will be honored with the Communicator of the Year Award from the Marquette University J. William and Mary Diederich College of Communication and the Marquette University Alumni Association in a ceremony on Saturday, Apr. 24. Kiernan earned his bachelor's degree in journalism from Marquette.

Before joining WBBM as news director in early 2009, Kiernan honed his skills at TV stations in Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Boston. Kiernan credits "60 Minutes" and his dad for helping him learn the importance of listening and making him interested in a career in journalism. "It is a gift to witness everyday history," Kiernan said, adding "it is a gift to inform viewers of that history through pictures and sound."
