Jeff Hirsh joins Evanston Now team


Jeff Hirsh has joined the Evanston Now reporting team after a 40-year award-winning career as a broadcast journalist.

Hirsh retired last year from WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, and moved to Evanston.

He won more than 40 local, regional and national awards for excellence in reporting, including 26 regional Emmy Awards.

Hirsh is also a three-time winner of the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the national Society of Professional Journalists, once for the Best Documentary in the U.S., and twice for the Best Investigative Reporting.

His work at Evanston Now is funded in part by contributions to the Evanston Now COVID-19 Local News Fund to expand our coverage of the pandemic and by our Evanston Now subscribers.

Ongoing support from our readers makes it possible to continue to enhance our coverage.
