Daily Reporter in Milwaukee hires new reporter
Nate Beck has been hired by the Daily Reporter in Milwaukee to cover state construction.
A story on its website states, “Beck previously covered development, manufacturing, local government and other topics as a business reporter for the Oshkosh Northwestern and the Fond du Lac Reporter, two daily newspapers in northeast Wisconsin.
“In his two-and-a-half years there, Beck covered Oshkosh Corp.’s successful pursuit of a $6.7 billion military contract and the company’s plan to build a new headquarters on public land in Oshkosh. He was also part of a team that uncovered an ongoing scandal tied to a series of building projects spearheaded by the now-bankrupt University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Foundation.
“Before joining the Oshkosh Northwestern and Fond du Lac Reporter, Beck majored in journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He interned for five months in Washington D.C. at the National Law Journal and Legal Times, where he covered federal courts; at the Fond du Lac Reporter; and at two small-town weekly newspapers as part of a Wisconsin Newspaper Association-supported fellowship program.”
