The Recombobulation Area Wins Silver For 'Best Column,' Two Bronze Honors at Milwaukee Press Club Awards

The Recombobulation Area is a weekly opinion column by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.

The Recombobulation Area is the winner of three (THREE!) Milwaukee Press Club Excellence in Wisconsin Journalism Awards.

Those awards are for:

The Milwaukee Press Club’s Gridiron Awards Ceremony was held Wednesday, May 19, and was streamed online. Gloria Borger, CNN’s chief political analyst, was honored with the Sacred Cat Award. Headliner Awards went to John Daniels, Jr., and Bob and Susan Mikulay. You can see the full list of winners here.


I want to take a moment to extend a special thanks to you, the readers and subscribers of this scrappy little publication. Most of the media outlets being honored by the Milwaukee Press Club have been around a long time, so it is because of people like you who have stepped up and supported something new that this was made possible. You support this effort in so many ways, and we are so grateful for the community that’s always had The Recombobulation Area’s back.

Thank you, sincerely.
